The main varieties include Shangi, Tigoni and Kenya mpya.As a good practice, potatoes should be planted on land where members of the Solanaceae family (tomatoes and black nightshade), have not previously been grown.
Predators were collected randomly from tomato (Solanum lycopersicon L.) (Solanaceae) (19.172894[degrees]S, 46.113822[degrees]W), potato (S.

The IGS4 probe (0.5 Kbp) consists of structural regions (SR) III-VI of the rDNA B-type IGS (2 Kbp) of Capsicum and includes the putative transcription initiation site motive (TIS) and diverse postulated regulatory elements widely conserved in Solanaceae. In addition, the IGS3 probe (1.8 Kbp) is a non-functional IGS variant from Capsicum complementary to IGS4, that lacks those regions and displays a longer SRII repetitive block.
