Abstract

This paper provides some important data on the evolution of the potato crop in Romania including aspects of research and development, differentiated on the basis of period and location. The paper also presents an analysis of the causes of the low potato yield per hectare in Romania. An analysis of the situation of the potato industry in Romania in comparison with the potato sectors of other Central and East European countries, over the period 1996-2006, reveals that—after Poland—Romania occupies the second place in terms of potato acreage and total production. Present and future objectives are described to solve the current problems of the potato crop in Romania under the prevailing economic and climatic conditions.
