Catalog of native potatoes varieties from the southeast of the department of Junin - Peru


This publication is evidence that the coordinated work between science and the indigenous knowledge of the Andean communities of the country marks a virtuous relationship in which everyone wins. We hope that this sample of a part of the native potato diversity existing in the southeast of Junin will inspire young farmers, who have in their hands this great inheritance and legacy of their ancestors, which it is necessary to maintain and promote. In addition, we hope that each of us, beneficiaries of this treasure as potato consumers, will recognize that, thanks to the work, knowledge, dedication and generosity of each of the thousands of conservationist farmers, we enjoy the great variety of Native potatoes at our table, which nourishes us and our families.
