Selection of parents in breeding potatoes for resistance to mechanical damage



Selection of parents in breeding potatoes for resistance to mechanical damage



Potato Research 26(4): 402



After testing 53 crosses for reaction of tuber tissue to impact by a ball, it was concluded that: (1) resistance of progeny depended more on the combination of parents than on the resistance of any one parent; (2) each combination gave individuals which were superior to the better parent; and (3) each cultivar, regardless of its own resistance, produced, with a suitable partner, some highly resistant progeny.
