Heat Tolerant Potatoes

Potato-in-Heat-Stress-2-172x300Who would have thought that in a temperate climate I could use my experience in the hot tropics?  Do we need to develop heat tolerant varieties for Canada?  I think so!

These plants show heat stress through the long, white stolons that have not produced tubers.  The heat causes a hormone imbalance in the plant which triggers these long stolons.
