IBP performed its third advisory and follow-up visit to Keshan-Renfa and Xian. This time the trip had the aim to inspect the fields, and see, how the in-vitro plantlets of th new varieties are growing in the glasshouse. The new varieties did well. In the fields of Chinese varieties, no viruses or bacteria were found! The growing conditions were rather dry, and the number of potato tubers per plant was considered to be low.
