Abstract

Potato is the third most important food crop of the world, which is grown in more than 150 countries. The potato research and development led by ICAR-Central Potato Research Institute, Shimla has transformed this crop from temperate to sub-tropical crop in our country through technological interventions of >66 potato varieties, production, protection, post-harvest management and quality seed production technologies. Further, challenges such as climate resilient varieties, emerging insect-pest and pathogens, and quality seed availability need to be addressed.
