Growth analysis in the potato crop (Solanum tuberosum subsp tuberosum), under different irrigation levels: tuber-shoot ratio, leaf area specific, leaf area ratio, leaf weight ratio



Growth analysis in the potato crop (Solanum tuberosum subsp tuberosum), under different irrigation levels: tuber-shoot ratio, leaf area specific, leaf area ratio, leaf weight ratio



IRRIGA 4(1): 13-24



An experiment was carried out at the Universidade Estadual Paulista, Brazil to evaluate irrigation levels for potato growth (Solanum tuberosum) in a sandy dark red latosol, under a plastic cover. Irrigation in the potato plots was carried out when the soil water potential reached -15, -35, -55, -75 and -1500 kPa. Higher irrigation levels caused an increase of the leaf area ratio and the leaf weight ratio.
