Potato centre

The decision taken by the government to set up a Potato Centre is heartening on at least two counts: saving huge quantities of potatoes from rotting at farmers’ yards and godowns, and facilitating export to target markets. For quite sometime there were demands from both farmers and wholesalers for a comprehensive mechanism — beyond just stocking potatoes in cold storages — to ensure quality, taste and hygiene. With the move announced on establishing a Potato Centre, it is clear that the authorities are set to making a headway in proper preservation, development and boosting export of potato.
