The report, which has been mailed to Potato Council levy-payers, gives growers an overview of the £681m GB farm gate potato industry at a national level and draws attention to the increasing impact of European potato markets on their British counterpart.
It reveals, for example, that the Russian Ministry of Agriculture reported that production last year was 22 million tonnes - compared with 31 million tonnes in 2009.
Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board senior potato analyst Jim Davies said: "This suggests that Russia will need to import more than 500,000 tonnes, compared with 375,000 tonnes in 2009, creating greater demand for exporters.
"The biggest exporters are usually Holland and Belgium, but the increased export demand will firm the market generally and create opportunities."
Shropshire grower and Potato Council market information committee member Richard Solari said: "Northern European production levels and export opportunities to eastern Europe have had a positive impact on the British market this season."
He added: "The booklet tracks Belgian, German, French and Dutch area, yield and production trends for the past five years. This is vital market intelligence for us."
Cheshire grower and Potato Council market information committee member Andrew Shaw said: "We are currently looking at our contract options for the next crop and this new report provides me with an enhanced understanding of British prices, production and area trends."
