Considerable advances were made in the s, when both pathogen testing and potato micropropagation became : Gregory A. Forbes, Amy Charkowski, Jorge Andrade-Piedra, Monica L. Parker, Elmar Schulte-Geldermann.

This book provides basic knowledge on how to produce, multiply and use propagation material in seed potato production and supply systems world wide. Healthy, vigorous seed tubers are essential in potato production. Producing them used to be expensive and difficult.

Case studies of institutional seed potato production systems in Canada, Great Britain and the Netherlands are presented. Background information on areas, yields and cultivars grown, consumption, utilization, trade, the processing sector and market infrastructure and regulation is given for the potato industry of each country.

The organization of each system and practices relating to seed potato Cited by: 5. Different systems of seed potato multiplication have been initiated in potato growing developing countries in the world, including Sub-Sahara Africa (Monares ; Potts and Nikura ; Crissman et al.

This has led to very low use (less than 10%) of certified potato seed in most developing countries. in seed potato production.

I thought I was quite “cool.”. In the developed potato producing countries, the formal seed system is predominant (Table 1). The potato seed systems are well organized; regulations exist to control the seed business and seed health and the private sector has strong participation (Gildemacher et.

rican system in which seed potatoes are grouped into four classes (genetic, basic, registered and certified) that vary with respect to their tolerance to diseases. Genetic seed potatoes are those obtained by vegetative multiplication of a cultivar, under the responsibility of a breeding institute, and maintained with a high degree of genetic.

In Kenya there is a very large commercial opportunity in the production of certified seed potatoes. The demand for and commercial price of clean potato seed tubers is far higher than potatoes for the food it was established that Kenya only produces about 1% of the potato seeds needed every year by potato Farmers countrywide.

Description This book is based on papers presented at the Ninth Triennial African Potato Association Conference, Naivasha, Kenya, 30 June-4 July The book focuses on the policies for germplasm exchange, food security and trade in Africa, seed systems, breeding and disease management and postharvest management, processing technologies and marketing systems of potato and sweet potato.
