The effect of cultivar, method of planting and plant population on the yield and quality of small potato tubers grown for export under tropical conditions in the Sudan

, : The effect of cultivar, method of planting and plant population on the yield and quality of small potato tubers grown for export under tropical conditions in the Sudan. Acta Horticulturae (33): 85-95

Planting in moist soil with first watering after sprout emergence tended to produce smaller tubers, but also a lower total weight, compared to planting in dry soil with first watering after planting. Very close spacing produced significantly higher total yields, and yields of small-sized tubers, than the usual wide spacing.
