World Potato Congress Inc. President Peter VanderZaag is pleased to announce Tuberosum Technologies Inc. as its newest Silver Sustaining Partner.
Tuberosum Technologies Inc. is an innovative potato research and development company dedicated to improving the efficiency and sustainability of potato production. In addition to its own breeding program in Canada, Tuberosum has contracted exclusive breeding programs with private breeders in the Netherlands and Chile to generate new and improved genetics for emerging and innovative potato markets.
Tuberosum Technologies is aware of the strains farming can have on our ecology. With this in mind, Tuberosum’s primary focus is to create more resilient varieties with higher yields, more nutrients, and more resistant to abiotic stresses. Achieving potato varieties with these qualities will lessen the strain potato production has on the grower and the environment.
Using traditional breeding methods, Tuberosum’s mandate is to help feed the world better.
