Potato is a solanaceous tuber crop. It is relished as a vegetable either alone or in mixture with a number of other vegetables.

Climatic requirements:

Potato, being a crop of temperate regions, requires a cool temperature. Ideal temperature for vegetative growth is around 240 C and that for tuberisation is 18-200 C. The crop is susceptible to frost and requires bright sunny weather.High humidity,

coupled with cloudy days, is injurious to potato, because the crop is attacked by fungal diseases (mainly late bright caused by Phytophthora infestans Mot de Bauy) under such conditions.
