India: Improved potato varieties on the way; farmers might harvest three crops a year

The Shimla-based Central Potato Research Institute (CPRI), in association with the Peru-based International Potato Center, is working on a project to develop early-bulking, heat-resistant and short-duration (70-75 days) varieties. Currently, the maturity period for the crop is 85-90 days. The research is at the test stage. If all goes well, farmers would be able to harvest three crops a year.
