Abstract

Kufri Girdhari is a medium maturing potato variety suitable for cultivation in Indian hills. It has a high level of resistance to late blight both in foliage and in tubers. It has medium sized, oval-oblong, white-cream tubers with pale-yellow flesh and excellent cooking quality. It yields higher than the varieties presently under cultivation in the hills and also has better keeping quality. The cultivation of this variety will not only result in stable potato production in the hills but will also be a boon to farmers.
