A Collaborative Breeding Strategy for Organic Potatoes in the Netherlands

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

Average potato yields in Dutch organic farming are rather low and variable, due to the disease known as late blight (Phytophthora infestans). Potato breeding companies, organic farmers and breeding scientists from the Louis Bolk Institute and Wageningen University, have joined forces in an umbrella program called Bioimpuls. Within this program there is a joint breeding project aimed at developing better adapted and late blight resistent varieties
