How Much Food Does a Potato Plant Produce?

Potatoes can normally produce a harvest of 150 to 300 pounds of potatoes per 100-foot row of plants. Plants need to be spaced with 6 to 8 inches between them inside each row. This would yield 150 to 200 plants per row. Therefore, each plant would average .75 to 2 pounds of potatoes.
