Effect of storage temperature of seed potatoes on growth and yield of potato under short day conditions

, : Effect of storage temperature of seed potatoes on growth and yield of potato under short day conditions. Indian Journal of Plant Physiology 7(4): 343-348

The effect of storage temperature of seed potatoes on the growth and yield of potato under field conditions was investigated in Modipuram, Uttar Pradesh, India. Seed potatoes of four cultivars were stored in darkness at 4 and 12 degrees C during 1995-96 and at 4, 12, and 20 degrees C during 1996-97. Cultivars Kufri Sindhuri and Kufri Bahar aged more rapidly, while Kufri Lalima and Desiree aged less rapidly.
