Potato crop is the fourth leading food crops in the world after maize, rice, and wheat. It is characterized by specific temperature requirements and develops best at about 20°C. Temperature is one of the essential uncontrollable factors affecting crop yield and heat stress has become a serious concern in many areas of the world. As most commercial potato cultivars are developed in temperate regions, therefore producing the greatest yield under long photoperiods and high temperatures is a serious problem. Thus our need increases for developing potato germplasm that can tolerate these adverse conditions. However, the development of new methodology, such as association genetics in conjunction with marker-assisted selection, offers promise that stress-tolerant germplasm can be developed as our need increases.

Keywords :

Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.); heat stress; growth; development; tuber yield.
