Since the potato is largely propagated by tubers, there is a great risk of introducing alien pathogens or pests into the region through seed tubers. Integration of different potato markets in the region through a market intelligence network.
This placed the country fifth in Asia and fifteenth in the world in terms of the amount of potato produced. The development of new processes that have minimal effect on the environment, and products that have lower fat content and fewer additives but maintaining crispiness.
The potato crop is also highly input-intensive and requires high doses of water and fertilizers.
There has been a steady decline in potato production in recent decades. Heat and drought stresses are likely to be important abiotic problems in the region.
Biochemistry of potato research papers
Initiation of public-private collaboration for seed production. The development of cold chain, popularization of traditional storage systems, market integration, the development of linkage mechanisms for farm-to-market supply chains, and use of IT-based modern tools for technology transfer are also be imperative for potato development in the region. Potatoes are grown across the Australian continent, from the southern temperate island of Tasmania to tropical North Queensland with production exceeding one million tons a year. Rights and permissions. The development of seed exchange mechanisms among different countries of the region. Taxonomic relationship studies. Potatoes are also cultivated in southern and eastern China in rice fallows during the winter season to get the benefit of higher seasonal and regional market prices. Since most of the countries in the region are geographically contiguous, there exists a bigger threat of large-scale spread and destruction by new virulent pathogens as a consequence of natural occurrence or bioterrorism. Capacity building of farmers through faculty and farmer exchange programmes for adoption of improved potato technologies.
The development of packages of practices for healthy seed production. Roots and tubers for the 21st century: trends, projections and policy for developing countries. There is a huge gap in yield among the countries in this region.
Moreover, a high rate of degeneration causes the seed to deteriorate after a few multiplications. Identification of natural enemies and biopesticides for controlling pests and diseases. Furthermore, the use of large quantities of pesticides by the farmers, especially for the control of late blight in potatoes, has created the problems of groundwater pollution, toxic residues in table potatoes, resistance development in pests and ecological imbalance. Near East and Central Asian countries heavily rely on European cultivars and seed. Approaches for breaching yield stagnation in potato. Japan is at number six in Asia and the Pacific region with the production of 2. There are a number of traditional low-cost and non-refrigerated storage structures which are in use in many countries of the region and these could be adopted in other countries with similar climatic conditions.
