Professor grows wealth with potatoes

By LI YINGXUE | China Daily | Updated: 2021-06-11 00:00

Researcher motivated to create better varieties to help impoverished people

From Xundian Hui and Yi autonomous county in Kunming city to Huize county in Zhaotong city, and from Zhaotong to the whole of Yunnan province, large or small, Li Canhui has probably visited every one of the province's potato fields.

As one of the first batch of potato researchers in Yunnan, Li has over two decades in the field. Every little thing he has experienced in that time helped contribute to the development of potato research in the province, and to his ambition to use advanced planting methods to lift villagers out of poverty.

As the deputy head of the Joint Academy of Potato Science at Yunnan Normal University, Li first entered the field in 1986. At the time, potato research was in its infancy in the province, and there was no previous research, let alone any laboratories.
