EU-funded ADAPT project works on stress-tolerant potatoes

The potato’s vulnerability to climate-induced environmental stresses such as extreme temperatures, flooding and droughts is raising major concerns about food security. To help address these concerns, the EU-funded ADAPT project is developing new strategies to ensure increased potato crop productivity, yield stability and quality in the challenging growth conditions of the future.

One of ADAPT’s objectives is to identify the morphological, physiological and molecular changes that make different potato cultivars resilient or not to single stresses and relevant combinations of these stresses. To this end, plant scientists, farmers and potato breeders participating in the ADAPT project selected 30 potato cultivars to study in controlled greenhouse experiments.
