Research And Development

 

Crop Improvement Varieties for early bulking; nutrient and water use efficiency; late blight resistance; processing; suitable for cultivation in non-traditional seasons and areas; and suitable for growing under organic/low input regimes. 
Crop Production Integrated nutrient and water management; potato based intensive cropping systems; agro-techniques for increasing total factor productivity (TFP); agro-techniques for non-traditional areas and seasons; organic farming; and development of low input production technologies.
Crop Protection Surveys/monitoring of potato pests; integrated pest management; late blight forecasting and management; and effective management of whiteflies.
