The International Potato Center‘s Annual Report 2015 is now available online. The report features research highlights, information on financials and links to publications, as well as statements from Barabara Wells, director general, and Rodney Cooke, chair of the board of trustees.

Attaining durable late blight resistance has been a goal of potato research for decades and initial results from 2015 indicate that we are close to overcoming it.”
