The potato industry is acutely aware of the fact that the sustainability of potato production depends largely on the success of its research and development programmes. The promotion of sustainable potato production, including water use, soil quality and disease management, is the primary objective of potato research over the coming years.

This comes down to production technology that will have no further negative impact on the environment and the earth’s natural resources. The likely effect of climate change on potato production must be determined, since it will put pressure on the effective use of resources such as water. Calls for greater restrictions on the use of certain chemicals, as well as pressure from the government regarding resource management, can also be expected.

If an industry is to remain competitive and sustainable, it must have the necessary research capacity to monitor inputs, to ensure the most efficient use of resources, and to develop alternatives where necessary.
