Potato production systems in different agro ecological regions and their relation with climate change

Blom-Zandstra, M.; Verhagen, A.


Climate change is a key issue which has the potential to change the production and processing landscape. Clearly potato production systems will have to respond to the impacts of climate change in addition greenhousegass emissions energy from arable lands will have to be managed.This document provides background on potato production systems, starting with a scoping of global production systems and tries to identify key issues for policy and research. It is meant as a starting point for discussion and collaboration on GRA relevant topics. The outcome of this process will be used to create regional or global networks on the identified topics.
