11TH WORLD POTATO CONGRESS
WPC2022 IRELAND MAY 30 - JUNE 2, 2022

It is envisaged that 1,000 delegates, from developing and developed countries across the globe, including growers, researchers, producers, traders, processors and manufacturers, will attend the Congress. The Irish Potato Federation has also secured the simultaneous hosting of the Europatat Congress, which is the annual congress of the European association of the potato trade. Both events will become a week-long focus on the potato, the third most important food crop in terms of global consumption.

Dr Song Bofu was my “big brother” for starting and developing the #CIP Research and Training program in #China in 1986. Our success was largely due to his wisdom and the great respect he garnered. He passed away today. He received the #WPC Industry award in 2004!

Charles R Brown, #potatobreeder colleague at #CIP #Peru, discovered potato diversity; brought that back to N.A. in 1984 to develop collaboratively with many breeders new varieties rich in nutrition beneficial for health #PAA. Sadly he passed away. http://Everloved.com
