Innovative tillage for potato production within regenerative farming systems (Ref: CTP-SAI-052)

Farmers are increasingly interested in soil health, biological methods of increasing soil fertility, and reducing the need for synthetic inputs; an approach often referred to as regenerative agriculture. Read more

Controlling meiotic recombination in diploid potato (Ref: CTP-SAI-037)

Meiosis and recombination remain a major tool for crop breeding and improvement. Independent chromosome segregation and recombination provide a powerful means to combine variation from different sources. Read more

Understanding genetic mechanisms of complex traits to improve potato breeding

Cultivated potato (Solanum tuberosum) plays a crucial role in addressing world food security. With the need to feed a growing population under rapidly changing climatic conditions comes the need to develop better adapted potato varieties. Read more

EASTBIO iCASE - Genetic analysis of diverse potato diseases using association genetics, SMRT-AgRenSeq

Potato is the third most important food crop and consumed by over a billion people in the world. More than 350 million tonnes of potato were produced in 2020 but it’s estimated that approximately 25% are lost to diseases. Read more

CTP-SAI four-year studentships for October 2023

The UKRI and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) has awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by G's Growers Ltd. Read more
