Differences in stress resistances of rooted sweet potato leaves



Differences in stress resistances of rooted sweet potato leaves



Journal of Agriculture of the University of Puerto Rico 68(3): 235-242



Young leaves of 15 Ipomoea batatas cultivars or lines were removed from the plant, rooted and subjected to 3 different stresses (1) growth in full sunlight in small pots, (2) growth in partial shade and (3) flooding of the roots. The effects of stress on 8 leaf, stem and root characters were observed. All 3 stresses led to reduced storage root production compared to that of controls.
