Aeroponic technology is seen as a breakthrough in the field of research and production of disease-free seed potatoes. This technology allows the production of fully active on a small area is a huge amount of seed potato tubers of high quality, the number of tubers can increase between 600% – 1400% compared to the propagation method by culture screen size and growing in the home.
In technical applications to aeroponic plant breeding, the potato crop is considered that this technology successfully collected the most impressive. Late 90s last century and the early years of the 21st century many research results of space research agency of the United States (NASA), the Agricultural Research Institute of Korean upland mentioned revolution in potato tubers produced small (minituber) whose content is mainly applied technology in production aeroponic tubers missed.
