New Book to guide Potato Research and Development


This book brings together an array of useful, research-based information on areas ranging from potato’s nutritional contribution to genetics and genetic resources to value chains.
Few people are aware that the potato is the third most important global crop in terms of human consumption. It contributes to the food and nutrition security, climate resilience and incomes of millions of resource-poor families across the Global South.

However, achieving the potato’s full potential to feed a growing population in a climate-changing world requires research, new technologies and other innovations.
 
To contribute to that process and share information on some of the latest advances in potato science, two International Potato Center (CIP) scientists edited an extensive compilation of research and expert perspectives in the book: 'The potato crop: its agricultural, nutritional and social contribution to humankind,' recently published by the prestigious publishing house Springer Nature.
