Background: Potatoes are a main vegetable crop in the United States with an annual production of 4 million tons (dry tuber) grown on 0.4 million ha. Climate change could impact potato production in the US. Potato production could decline or increase in the current potato production areas. There could also be opportunities to produce potatoes in new areas of the US under future climate scenarios.
Goal: Assess the climate change impact on potato tuber yields and potential adaptations, including possible shifts in production area in the US.
