Abstract

This potato descriptor list was initiated for the benefit of breeders and developed with support from the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) Programme Committee for Plant Resistance Breeding and the use of Gene banks and the Plant Productivity Committee following consultation with IBPGR. The UPOV descriptor list for potatoes has been referred to and common systems used where possible. Although the suggested coding should not be regarded as a definitive scheme, this format has the backing of IBPGR. The descriptor list provides an international minimum format for varieties. This could form the basis of a list to include primitive cultivars and wild species, which could produce a rapid, reliable and efficient means for information storage, retrieval and communication.
