Podcast: ‘From Peru to Kenya – The Potato’s Journey of Resilience’

In a first episode of the podcast series titled ‘Crop Chronicles‘, hosted and presented by the Crop Trust, the presenters delve into the fascinating world of potatoes. Discover how this tuber, once dismissed by Karl Marx as uninspiring, has become a global staple and a symbol of resilience.

Journey with Crop Trust from the Peruvian Andes, where potatoes are grown as they were thousands of years ago, to the Kenyan farmlands, where innovative breeding techniques are helping farmers combat late blight exacerbated by climate change.

Learn about the efforts of scientists and the Crop Trust in preserving potato diversity and preparing this essential crop for the future.
