Effect of drought stress on bioactives and starch in Chilean potato landraces

While it is well known that drought reduces potato yield, little knowledge is available on the effect of a dry season on bioactive compounds. The results of this study provide valuable information regarding the effect of

drought stress in tuber composition and highlight the unexplored potential of the Chilean potato gene pool in the development of varieties with higher bioactive

content.
