Russian breeders have been working on developing potato varieties for industrial processing since 2015. These varieties have a higher starch content, which makes them ideal for producing high-quality industrial products like potato chips and French fries.
One such variety is the “Nevsky” potato, which was developed by the Central Research Institute of Agriculture in St. Petersburg. The “Nevsky” potato has a higher starch content than traditional potato varieties and is more resistant to disease, making it a reliable and cost-effective option for industrial potato processors.
Another promising variety is the “Ermak,” developed by the Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences. This variety has a higher yield and is more resistant to disease than traditional potato varieties, making it an attractive option for farmers looking to increase their crop yield.
The development of these new potato varieties is expected to have a significant impact on the potato industry in Russia and around the world. By providing industrial processors with higher quality, more reliable potatoes, these varieties will help to improve the efficiency and profitability of potato processing operations.
The development of industrial potato varieties by Russian breeders is a significant achievement that will have a profound impact on the potato industry. These new varieties are more resistant to disease, have a higher yield, and are ideal for producing high-quality industrial products like potato chips and French fries. We can expect to see more developments in this field as breeders continue to innovate and improve potato varieties for industrial processing.
