The Potato Sector
Karnataka used to be among the top ten potato producing states in India, but dropped in 2017 to the 11th spot.

The five year average potato production in Karnataka (2012-2016) was 558.040 tonnes, accounting for 1.23 percent of the overall potato production in India in this period.

Potato Production in Karnataka takes place during the summer / monsoon season (Kharif), unlike most of the potato production in India (90%) which takes place during the winter season (Rabi).

Other states growing potato during the Kharif season are Maharashtra, Uttarkhand and Himachal Pradesh, with especially Maharashtra seeing a large increase in recent years at the expense of Karnataka.
