Caption: Potato cross-breeding research. Researcher collecting pollen from potato (Solanum tuberosum) plant flowers. This pollen will later be used to cross-pollinate another variety of potato flower. This is being done in an effort to breed plants that produce potatoes with a high phytonutrient content. Phytonutrients are plant-derived chemical compounds that are being studied for their potential health benefits. Some evidence suggests that phytochemicals in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of cancer.
