Potato (Solarium tuberosum L.) is a wholesome food containing carbohydrates, protein, minerais and vitamins. The crop produces more food than cereals and vegetables and as much protein as soyabean per unit based time. The principle disadvantage associated with the crop is that it is seasonal and the bulk of the crop is of shorter shelf life due to limited cold store facilities accommodating only about one fourth of the produce. Potato processing industries require potatoes round the year to run the plant and for this, they have to depend upon the cold stored potatoes.

Abstract


Potato (Solarium tuberosum L.) is a wholesome food containing carbohydrates, protein, minerais and vitamins. The crop produces more food than cereals and vegetables and as much protein as soyabean per unit based time. The principle disadvantage associated with the crop is that it is seasonal and the bulk of the crop is of shorter shelf life due to limited cold store facilities accommodating only about one fourth of the produce. Potato processing industries require potatoes round the year to run the plant and for this, they have to depend upon the cold stored potatoes.
