Belarusians love their potatoes. They consume more per head than any other country – an estimated 180 kg, or almost half a kilogram a day.
Today, Belarus ranks eighth among world potato producing countries, and its annual output – 8.7 million tonnes in 2007 – is about twice that of wheat and barley combined. Over the past 15 years, the country’s harvested area has shrunk, from 780 000 ha to 400 000 ha, but production has held steady at an average of 8.6 million tonnes annually, thanks to yield gains.
