Revolution in the breeding of the potato


Revolution in the breeding of the potato, Lenin Acad. Sci. Inst. Pl. Ind., Leningrad, 44
Revolution in the breeding of the potato
A review is given of potato breeding in Europe from the introduction of the potato up to the present time; much emphasis is laid on the poverty of the material as regards new characters, little more having been accomplished than a recombination of the characters already present in the original introductions. The question of blight resistance remains unsolved and the production of early blight-resistant varieties is still the main problem of potato breeding.
