在塞拉利昂, (爱尔兰) 马铃薯种植非常有限。

马铃薯被认为是具有高经济价值的新兴作物,种植在塞拉利昂北部的科伊纳杜古区的Kabala高地。

一篇2010年的会议论文 提到:

种植面积很小,大多数农民的种植面积不足2英亩。调查时发现最常见的马铃薯品种是Nicolas、Resy 和 Ostra。

马铃薯的种植是在塞拉利昂最冷的时期进行的,这时正好是被称为哈马丹 (harmattan) 季节的12月至1月期间。由于低地容易获取水,此处生态也最为人所偏爱。

会造成严重经济损失的病害包括晚疫病和马铃薯病毒。晚疫病的发病率很高,且随着时间的推移情况愈发严重,而马铃薯病毒的症状表现在整个生长季节都相当稳定。

在受评估的两个品种中,Nicolas 品种对晚疫病和马铃薯病毒的抗性程度较高。其预期产量极低,从2.6吨/公顷到4吨/公顷不等。
塞拉利昂政府表示 (未注明日期) 承诺增加爱尔兰马铃薯的产量,以促进该国的粮食安全。
