Progress on true potato seed research in Bangladesh

, : Progress on true potato seed research in Bangladesh. Proceedings of the First National Workshop on Tuber Crops, 28-30 May, 1989: 65-72

Information is tabulated on the effect on production of true potato seeds of extended photoperiod, tuber pruning, stem incision and stem grafting, and application of gibberellic acid. All of the treatments increased production. Studies on andigena-based genotypes introduced from the CIP has revealed that several produce seeds under natural conditions, but not at the quantity need for commercial production.

Potato is a major food crop in Bangladesh, but its average yield is only 10.2 t/ha despite research which suggests that under Bangladesh conditions it should be more than 30 t/ha. The low yield is due to low yielding local varieties being grown on...

Analysis of the seedborne fungi associated with true potato seed (TPS) from Joydebpur, Gazipur, Bangladesh, in 1989-90 and 1990-91, revealed 13-15 fungal species representing 9 genera. The predominant fungi were Fusarium oxysporum, Curvularia luna...
