Drought and Heat Tolerance Evaluation in Potato ( Solanum tuberosum L.) uri icon

abstract

  • The impacts of water restriction and high temperatures on potato production will increase over the next decades, due to climate change and the extension of cultivation in drought and heat prone areas. We review recent achievements and describe new avenues in the evaluation of tolerance to these abiotic stresses in potato, focusing on the definition of target populations of environments, choice and characterization of the managed stress environment, stress monitoring, and secondary traits measurement.
