Farmers welcome new seed potato producing technology

Media: People Daily

A new seed potato producing technology recently introduced in the country, known as apical rooted cuttings is promising to provide a viable alternative to mini-tubers and accelerate high quality seed production for farmers.

Cuttings are similar to nursery grown seedlings. They are produced from tissue culture plantlets in a screenhouse and then the plantlets are then taken to the fields of seed producers or local farmers to plant them and produce a high quality number of seed tubers.
