Basically, there is enough food in the world but, unfortunately, it isn’t distributed well, which means there’s also a lot of famine. The potato can play a substantial role in solving this problem. After all, the crop provides healthy and highquality food, requires relatively little water compared to cereals, and can grow in many parts of the world. The potato plant also produces a directly-edible yield a short time after planting. To instruct people in poorer countries how to grow and store potatoes, there are organisations such as Trias.
