Relationship of relative maturity and storage temperatures to weight loss of potatoes in storage



Relationship of relative maturity and storage temperatures to weight loss of potatoes in storage



American Potato Journal 54(7): 305-314



In trials in 1970-5, potato Russet Burbank were given 130, 190, 240 or 320 kg N/ha, planted on 18 April-27 May, haulm was killed on 10-16 Sept., tubers were harvested on 17 Sept.-15 Oct. and wt. loss studied during storage. Harvest date had no significant influence on wt. loss in storage of tubers which were grown under a low fertilizer regime. With high N rates, tubers harvested 21-45 days after haulm-killing lost less wt. than those harvested 2-13 days after the haulm was killed.
