Watching a nature program about one of the South American countries, can't quite remember it was a long time ago but the part about potatoes stuck in my mind, because the potato can cross breed it is always creating new varieties so at all times there are varieties that will not be affected by the blight conditions at any given time so in their natural environment blight isn't a major problem more a localised issue.
it doesnt seem thankgod to progress further than potatoes doesnt infect other rooted vegetables or cross over to sweet potatoes so why doesnt someone look into why that is and see if there is something about sweet potatoes that blight doesn like and crossbreed them to decrease the liklihoood of it ever happening again?
