18世纪70年代,一位英国的总督在孟加拉推广马铃薯栽培,在一个世纪内,马铃薯便成了一种常见的菜园蔬菜。然而,缺乏适宜的品种阻碍了马铃薯的大规模生产:欧洲品种不适应炎热的孟加拉平原。

如今,马铃薯在孟加拉国成为非常成功的冬季作物(十月至三月),2005年的产值估计为5.6亿美元,仅次于水稻。

2007年,孟加拉农民收获了430万吨马铃薯(比1961年增加了12倍),这使该国在世界马铃薯生产国中排名第14,在亚洲排名第4。

马铃薯的种植通常用以现货销售为目的,国内大部分的生产都集中在首都达卡附近,达卡是该国最大的城区市场。马铃薯年度消费量增长迅速,从1990年的人均约7公斤增加到2005年的24公斤以上。

据食品总局(DGoF)称,该国马铃薯年需求量为650-700万吨,而其产量为895万吨(2014财年)。
