The International Potato Center (CIP) in Peru has announced that they have successfully grown potatoes in a hermetically-sealed orbital environment that simulates conditions on Mars, indicating that it is possible to repeat the events of the 2015 film The Martian.

 

Red-skinned varieties made up half of the total selections that Ag Canada potato breeders released earlier this month during their annual release open house. This includes a multi-purpose variety that shows promise for processing as wedges and as a traditional table potato.

 

Union Nationale des Producteurs de Pommes de Terre – UNPT (French Association of Potato Producers) mentions that it received plenty of questions from potato producers regarding the availability of seed potatoes.
