True Potato Seed technology: New potato seeds could spark revolution

Research underway in Saskatchewan in Canada is part of a worldwide revolution in potato production, say officials at Tuberosum Technologies Inc. At a recent open house at the company’s facility in Saskatchewan’s irrigation district near Broderick, TTI showcased its work with true potato seed (TPS) technology. “True seed is basically a sexually produced seed, or the botanical seed in green tomato-like fruits on potato plants,” said company research and development manager Khyal Thakur.
