在19世纪中叶马铃薯被引入阿尔及利亚之后,马铃薯种植主要用于出口到法国市场。

到1962年国家从法国统治下独立时,农民平均每年马铃薯收成为25万吨,其中约三分之一用于供应出口市场。

自此以后,马铃薯已成为国内消费日益重要的作物,2013年产量超过490万吨。马铃薯种植面积超过16万公顷,可在阿尔及利亚某些地方全年种植和收获。

新鲜马铃薯的主要产区位于地中海沿岸,那里气候温和,可全年生产马铃薯。在海岸和阿特拉斯山脉之间海拔500米处的山丘和山谷中以及高原地区,也可种植马铃薯。

最近,沙漠小镇El Oued已经发展成为一个马铃薯种植区。在El Oued,马铃薯生长在撒哈拉沙漠中部的中枢灌溉土壤中。截至2016年,阿尔及利亚总产量的约40%来自El Oued。

这张由乔治•施泰因梅茨(George Steinmetz)于2015年在意大利摄影节提交的航拍照片展示了如何利用中枢灌溉对El Oued周边地区用于马铃薯种植开发。

阿尔及利亚的年度马铃薯消费量从近九十年代初的35公斤增加到近年来的65公斤左右。
