New data on the changes in morphology and weight of the cush-cush yam (Dioscorea trifida) under field conditions

New data on the changes in morphology and weight of the cush-cush yam (Dioscorea trifida) under field conditions

In field trials in Guadeloupe in 1976-7 and 1979-80, growth and development of D. trifida INRA 25 were studied by weekly sampling of the crop. 5 main phases were described: tuber bulking; flowering; formation of the tuberiferous axis cluster; translocation of DM to the tuber and tuber maturation. Origin of the mother-tuber affected early growth and development but not final yield.
