The Potato Sector

Potatoes are the largest field vegetable crop in British Columbia, comprising approximately one-third of all field vegetables produced, and providing a solid foundation for field vegetable production in the province.

The BC potato industry includes production of table and seed potatoes, and is well known for its certified virus-free seed potato program.

Organic potatoes are another small but growing sector of the industry.

In 2013 British Columbia produced 1.7 million cwt on 6200 acres. BC ranks 8th in potato production by province in Canada.
