Arequipa: small farmers will improve potato quality with certified seeds | News

The Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (Midagri) delivered certified potato seeds to the Agrarian Directorate of Condesuyos (Arequipa) so that small and medium-sized farmers in the area can produce crops with high genetic value and competitive in the market.

This genetic material has been developed by the Andenes Agrarian Experimental Station and evaluated by the Arequipa Experimental Station of the Midagri National Institute for Agrarian Innovation (INIA).

It will be installed in the demonstration plots that have been enabled in agricultural fields located 3,200 meters above sea level.

With it, farmers will be able to obtain seeds with biofortified characteristics that generate good yield per hectare, that have resistance to the main pests and diseases, adaptability to high temperatures, good color pulp, high levels of nutrients, vitamins and adequate fruit size.

In this way, the crops will not only contribute to good nutrition, but will also generate better economic competitiveness for the farmer in regional, national and international markets.
