Potato Export Data


Scotland has been exporting seed and ware potatoes around the world for many decades. Data on the volume of trade, export destinations and varieties exported are collected each month from Phytosanitary Certificates issued by the Scottish Government.

These webpages give a summary of the Scottish potato trade to countries requiring a Phytosanitary Certificate. All figures exclude trade with countries which are currently members of the European Union (EU). However, they include exports to the Canary Islands, which are part of Spain but have a special phytosanitary status within the EU.

Detailed information on seed and ware potato export volumes, destinations and varieties can be accessed on Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture website:  http://www.sasa.gov.uk/seed-ware-potatoes/potato-exports.

Any queries regarding Scottish potato export data should be directed to Dr Triona Davey at SASA, via email at Triona.Davey@sasa.gsi.gov.uk or phone 0131 2446354.
