Pakistán: Produce disease-resistant potato tubers using tissue culture technology

Tissue culture technology is being widely used for large-scale plant multiplication and gives a science-based solution for plant propagation, disease elimination and plant improvement, …

...said Pakistan Agricultural Research Council (PARC) Chairman Dr Muhammad Azeem Khan during an agreement signing ceremony between PARC and UAE-based Green System Pakistan Pvt Limited.

According to a report by Profit Pakistan Today, the chairman said: “Due to disease attacks on local potato varieties, the country has to import potato tubers from Holland. From this agreement in coordination with private sector, we will produce virus free potato tubers locally, which will save our valuable foreign exchange.”

PATCO CEO Dr Muhammad Amjad and Green System Pakistan CEO Rana Tahawar Ali Khan signed the agreement on behalf of their organizations.

Dr Amjad said this accord is another chapter of cooperation between PARC-PATCO and Green System Pakistan, as the parties will work together to develop screen houses at NARC for expansion to up to two million potato tubers, which would help to reduce import of potato seeds.
