Over the past two weeks, the average wholesale price for potatoes in Uzbekistan has increased by 12.5%, reaching its maximum since the beginning of July this year. However, current wholesale prices are 10% lower than last year, EastFruit specialists note.

From mid-July to the end of November of this year, the average wholesale prices for potatoes in Uzbekistan were stable and remained at the level of 4 000 UZS/kg, except for a short period in the second half of August. But at the end of November – the first decade of December, there was an increase in potato prices. According to EastFruit price monitoring, from November 25 to December 9, 2022, the average wholesale price for potatoes in Uzbekistan increased from 4 000 to 4 500 UZS/kg ($0.36 to 0.40).

In January-September 2022, 2,649 thousand tonnes of potatoes were produced in Uzbekistan, which is 164 000 tonnes or 6.6% more than in the same period last year. The volume of imports of marketable potatoes to Uzbekistan during the same period amounted to 328 700 tonnes, which is 9 000 tonnes or 2.8% more than last year.
