Abstract

Potato (Solarium tuberosum L.) is one of the most important and widely grown crops in every province of China. It is a staple food for the people living in the cold and mountainous regions, such as north-east, Inner Mongolia, north-west and south-west of China, and a major vegetable for the people living in the cities.
