Canadian potato production, June 2022

Released: 2022-07-15

Data on the seeded area of potatoes are now available for 2022.

Potato farmers planted 385,128 acres (155 856 hectares) of potatoes in 2022, up 0.1% compared with 2021.

Prince Edward Island continued to report the largest seeded area at 80,500 acres, followed closely by Manitoba (79,500 acres) and Alberta (72,300 acres).

Despite maintaining the largest area of potatoes, Prince Edward Island reported the most significant drop in acreage in 2022. This decrease of 5,500 acres is primarily due to the uncertainty of export markets for the upcoming crop.
