Indian-Commodity  :  Commodities  :  Potato  :  Potato production to be close to 100 LT in 2018 season

Potato production to be close to 100 LT in 2018 season (31-Jan-2018)

The production of potato in the 2018 season is likely to be close to 100 lakh tone (LT) compared to production of 110 LT recorded in 2017. As per West Bengal Coal Storage Association president Patit Paban De, the drop in production in the current season can be attributed to lower acreage of potato cultivation by five per cent.

However, there would be no major jump in potato price this year, despite the shortfall, since as of January 1, 2018, the state government already has a carryover stock of close to 9 LT. Also, there will be no major impact on production of potato despite delayed sowing due to disruptions caused by bad weather.

Further, a meeting is scheduled on February 19 with the stakeholders for the government's strategy regarding potato production and pricing.
