NIFA Invests $2.6 M in Potato Research

NIFA recently awarded four Potato Research grants as part of their Special Research Grants program. The Potato Breeding Research awards support potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) research that focuses on the development and testing of superior commercial potato varieties using classical breeding and advanced molecular and biotechnological approaches. This research will help improve potato quality and increase resistance to pests and diseases, leading to commercial variety development and transfer of superior materials to growers.
