尽管有关马铃薯引入黎巴嫩的过程的记载并不详尽,到20世纪70年代中期时,黎巴嫩已经成为重要的马铃薯生产地,年产量达到10万吨左右,其中大约60%出口至其他阿拉伯国家、英国,甚至还有巴西。

马铃薯产量受到70年代中期内战的严重影响,在1976减少至3万吨。

随后产量从这一低水平飙升,2003年至2013年期间的总马铃薯产量平均每年达到了43.5万吨。

贝卡谷地是主要的生产区域,占到国家产量的65%(1974年的估算)。尽管相较于周围山脉地势要低,贝卡谷地比平均海平面高出1000米。这里是一大主要的农业区,生产大量的谷物和马铃薯,许多农场使用大型的现代化操作。私营种植者组成的强大组织管理着种子的合作式进口和马铃薯出口的营销。其他生产区域包括北海岸的Akkar平原,黎巴嫩山和南部靠近以色列边境处也有小型种植。

马铃薯在贝卡谷地为两季种植。2月至3月播种春薯,6月至7月丰收。7月或8月再种秋薯,10月至11月丰收。在贝卡谷地,当马铃薯短缺时,早季的马铃薯4月就会收获。
