What is it about?

Plant characters in potatoes do not respond similarly to water stress of irrigation. A highly diverse panel of potato cultivars revealed traits associated to water stress tolerance and to high yielding environments.

Why is it important?

It helps breeders to pick progenitors for their crossings and increase the selection efficiency for water stress, for high yields or for stability of yield

Perspectives

I hope this article is read among classical as well as molecular breeders, and inspires them to continue research in this area and therefore give more tools for improvement these complex characters
