Peru’s National Institute of Agricultural Innovation Identifies 130 Potato Varieties

A team of researchers from Peru’s National Institute of Agricultural Innovation identifies 130 Peruvian potato varieties. INIA informed the Spanish international news agency, EFE, about the latest development on Monday. The research project is part of the country’s effort to catalogue the different types of potato and its classifications. The data collected will be added to the National Registry of the Native Potato of Peru, Latino Fox News reported. A week ago, it was reported that Peru is going to develop new varieties of potato. It came after an agreement from three Peruvian agencies who conduct studies about potatoes. The National Institute of Agrarian Innovation, the National Agricultural Innovation Program or NAIP, and the International Potato Center or CIP, all have signed agreements to fund a research that would come up with new varieties of potatoes, according to a report by Peru This Week.
