Technical Session C: Potato Variety Development & Biotechnology

Chair: Ghislain Pelletier- Board Director | Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform and World Potato Congress Inc.

Co-chair: Marc Ghislain – Leader for The Game Changing Solutions, SSA Research, Kenya | International Potato Center

Monday, 28 May – 14.30 – 17.30 hrs

Summary:

This session will provide the most recent progress on potato crop improvement from an industry and public-sector perspective. It will cover various topics such as the development of new varieties with tolerance and/ or resistance to biotic and abiotic stress, adaptation to climate change, biofortifi ed potatoes, the potential of genetically-engineered potato varieties using trans / cisgenics and gene editing, regulatory and consumer acceptance barriers for the use of biotechnology, inbred line  development for hybrid variety development, and the recent development in omics technology for accelerating potato variety development. We anticipate the presenters will address the justifi cation for crop improvement in the context of climate change, reduction in the use of chemical inputs, nutritional improvement of the potato, reduction of post-harvest losses, and increase of income for potato farmers.
