This includes the investigation of chromosome behavior, phylogeny, pest resistance, postharvest physiology, intra-and interspecific crossing, nutritional quality, flavor, storage quality, and effects of environmental stress on potato, Solanum species, carrot, cucumber, onion and garlic. This also includes the use of exotic germplasm, germplasm enhancement, and development of production technologies where needed.
