Potato plays a vital role in food and nutritional security worldwide. FAO declared potato as the crop to address future global food security and poverty alleviation during 2008. It plays a very important role in Indian agriculture as potato alone contributes about 21 percent of the total vegetable area and 26 percent of total vegetable production. It is the third most important food crop after rice and wheat and the world’s most important non-grain food crop. As per FAOSTAT data for the year 2017, India with 48.6 million t is ranked second in potato production in the world, only behind China (99.2 million t). However, despite being ranked second in production, India position in export of potato products is very low when compared to other developed countries.
