In 2013 Greece cultivated potato on 32,700 hectare, resulting in a total production of 829.400 tonnes (reflecting an average yield of just over 25 ton/ha)
The regions of Western Greece, Sterea Greece and the Peloponese account for 43% of the total area given over to potato production while to the north, Macedonia and Thrace account for 30% of the area under potato crops.
Potatoes can be grown in Greece almost year-round due to favorable climatological conditions
Potato consumption in Greece was 65.38 kg/capita/year (fresh + processed) in 2011.
Greece imports a large percentage of its seed potatoes, mostly from the Netherlands.
