Salt tolerant trial i.c.w. Domiatec - DOCOM and WUR/Alterra

In january 2014 the first trial with salt tolerant was planted by Domiatec and Meijer in Wadi Natrun. This desert area in Egypt is located beside the well known Nile-delta. This trial has now become one of the top priority researches supported by WUR and DACOM.

Location salt tolerant trail near “A”.

Salt is a growing problem worldwide , also in Egypt. The water taken out of the soil for irrigation is becoming more salty. This means that the potato will be placed under pressure. Meijer is already working on a breeding program focused on salt tolerance for several years. We do this close to Rilland, in the marshes of the Westerschelde in Zeeland. With the experience from Rilland we selected a group of varieties to continue and make new trials.

Differances in results can be seen at the images.




In collaboration with Domiatec, DACOM, WUR and Meijer started in 2013. We used our combined irrigation and soil expertise for this program. In the Summer Crop 2013 ( plant January harvest of May) we have seen already clear racial differences between the three salt regimes. The seed of this crop was used for the Winter Crop planting (plants October harvest February). A large amount of data is already collected.
