Screening Germplasm for High Foliar and Low Tuber Glycoalkaloids Grant uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • Identify plants with high foliar and low tuber glycoalkaloids. Since glycoalkaloids are toxic to both insects and people, this combination will be very useful in breeding because most insect pests eat only the foliage, while people eat only the tubers.
