In the structure of the region's crop production, potato cultivation takes the first place. Cultivation of culture is mainly carried out by citizens in their personal subsidiary plots and on garden plots. The contribution of farms to the regional production volume is also significant - over 18%.
In total, the area under farms of all categories in the area under potatoes is 5,4 thousand hectares. At the end of 2018, 81,8 thousand tons were collected, which is 4% higher than a year earlier. This is primarily due to the increase in productivity, which last year amounted to 151 kg / ha.
The maximum potato yield last year was obtained in the SEC “Rus” in the Puchezhsky district - 340 c / ha. The leaders are also KH “Niva” and KH “Orion” of the Teykovsky district, LLC “Alliance” of the Volga region and SEC “Renaissance” of the Rodnikovsky district. The share of these enterprises in the volume of potato production among agricultural organizations and peasant (farmer) households is more than 50%.
The total volume of potato consumption in 2017 in the Ivanovo region amounted to 81,5 thousand tons or 80 kg per capita.
