For a state whose economy is significantly dependent on the health of the potato industry, a mechanism to forecast the expected level of production with a reasonable degree of accuracy could be a valuable tool for economic analysis and planning. The objective of this study is to develop an econometric model to predict production using selected data which are available well before the crop is harvested.
