Solynta is a specialized potato breeding company, which has made hybrid breeding (also known as hybrid pure inbred line breeding, a non-GMO classical breeding approach) applicable to Potato. Solynta uses diploid potato (Solanum tuberosum) lines to create its hybrids. The end-product of these hybrid crosses are the botanical seeds. The new breeding technique has been mentioned as the most important invention in potato cultivar development.
The Dutch government in presence of HRH King Willem Alexander honored Solynta as a National Icon Laureate in 2014 for the hybrid potato.
Breakthrough in potato breeding will enlarge the potential of potato as a food, feed and industrial crop. Solynta has developed a revolutionary breakthrough in potato breeding by establishing HIgh Speed POtato Breeding (HISPOB).
