巴西是世界主要块根作物木薯的起源中心。然而,直到19世纪末欧洲移民将马铃薯引入巴西南部相对较温暖的地区之前,马铃薯的种植实际上并不为巴西人所知(在圣保罗州,全年几乎所有月份都可种植马铃薯)。

虽然被当地称为 batata inglesa 的马铃薯在巴西农业中依然属于次要作物,但是该国却是拉丁美洲的第二大马铃薯生产国,2007年的产量超过了330万吨。在过去的15年中,马铃薯的产量平均每年增加5%,并且每公顷平均产量已经从14吨增加到24吨。

尽管巴西的马铃薯基本不出口,但是人均年消费量依然很低,仅14公斤。但预计这种状况将会改变:作为世界新兴经济巨人,巴西被视为马铃薯加工快餐食品的一个首选市场。(来源:国际马铃薯年)
