Canada: Saskatchewan company has seed of an idea to revolutionize potato production

Inside the fruit are many tiny seeds, called true potato seeds, that can grow potatoes. If successful, Tuberosum Technologies Inc. president Joel VanderSchaaf says producers will be able to use a 100 gram packet of seeds, where they would have had to use three tonnes of potatoes to plant a hectare of crop.
