A mass-selection method for the acclimatization and improvement of edible diploid potatoes in the United Kingdom



A mass-selection method for the acclimatization and improvement of edible diploid potatoes in the United Kingdom



Journal of Agricultural Science, UK 99(3): 631-640



A mass-selection scheme for outbreeding diploid potatoes of the Phureja- Stenotomum group is described. The scheme includes both seedling and tuber populations. Provision is made for high yielding clones to contribute further true seed to ensuing generations. A computer is used to document and randomize the plantings. Selection criteria and methods are described. Results are given from an experiment to monitor progress.
