Abstract

Kufri Sangam is a medium maturing, main season high yielding dual purpose potato variety suitable for
cultivation in northern plains (for table use) and central plains (for processing and table use). It is a clonal selection from
a cross between Kufri Himsona √ Kufri Pukhraj. It has compact, vigorous and medium-tall plants. It produces attractive
white-cream, ovoid tubers with shallow eyes and cream flesh. It possesses 18-20% tuber dry matter, low reducing sugars
(<150mg/100 g fresh weight), mealy texture, very good taste. It produces >90 marketable and >80% processing grade tuber
yield and is capable of yielding 35-40 t/ha under optimum agronomical practices. Kufri Sangam yields higher than the
presently grown popular table variety Kufri Bahar and processing varieties viz., Kufri Chipsona-3 and Kufri Frysona. Kufri
Sangam is moderately resistant to late blight and has excellent keeping quality under country storage conditions with over
10 weeks dormancy period.
