在马铃薯的世界,非洲人口最多的国家尼日利亚的情况引人注目:它是撒哈拉以南非洲的第四大马铃薯生产国,拥有几乎与德国同样多的马铃薯用地,马铃薯产量在过去的数十年间增加了7倍,在2007年达到84万吨。

马铃薯的主要种植区是乔斯高原,那里的海拔高度为1200至1400米,夏季温度很少超过35°C,这种温带气候很适合马铃薯生产。然而,生产能力却受限于缺少适宜的品种及高昂的土地和劳务费用。实际上尼日利亚的马铃薯平均产量处于世界最低水平,每公顷稍高于3.1吨。

马铃薯的消费量也很低,大约为每人每年3.2公斤。但是,尼日利亚对马铃薯的喜好却与日俱增,尤其是在迅速发展的城市地区——自2000年以来,原料和加工马铃薯的进口量从每年不足9000吨增加到4万吨。
