Abstract

The potato (Solanum tuberosum) is the world’s third most important food crop after wheat and rice with 309 million tonnes fresh weight of tubers produced in 2007 from 18.5 million hectares of land (http://faostat.fao.org). Half of the potato production in 2007 (150 million tonnes) was in Asia, Africa, and Latin America as a result of steady increases in recent years, particularly in China and India. Indeed, China (56 million tonnes, down from 71 in 2005) is now the number one potato producer in the world and India (22 million tonnes) is third, with the Russian Federation (37 million tonnes) second, and the USA (20 million tonnes) fourth.
