U.S. Harvested Potato Acres Down for 2022


Potato growers in the United States are expected to harvest 902,000 acres of potatoes this year, the September 2022 crop production report from the United States Department of Agriculture said. This is less than the 910,000 acres that were planted this year.

In 2021, there were 910,000 acres, which was down from the 943,000 acres planted.

There were 112,761 acres of certified potato seed planted for 2022, which is more than 2021’s 107,282 acres.

The report noted that starting this year in 2022, to allow for more complete information, potato area planted for certified seed data was published in the September report instead of the August report.
