+ - First halophile potatoes harvested.

Razgorov Prikazka writes: A Dutch based company from Groningen is trying to create a potato race that is able to survive in a saline environment. The first test-batch is just lifted on the island Texel and seem to be in good shape. The company states that rising sea-levels will create a demand for halophile crops.
