  • 17. Potato abiotic stress tolerance
  • 18. Potato Development Targets
  • 19. Abiotic stress tolerance is complex… Environmental constraints Difficult selection under natural • Variability of natural climate stress conditions stress events Genetic constraints • Tolerance traits might be Interactions between genes and polygenic and epistatic genetic background Not all tolerance traits work in all • Gene x environment interactions environments Efficient breeding requires information on the genetic and physiological basis of tolerance traits
