Effect of spacing and seedling tuber size on potato (Solanum tuberosum) grown through true potato seed

Effect of spacing and seedling tuber size on potato (Solanum tuberosum) grown through true potato seed

Indian Journal of Agronomy 49(3): 194-197

An experiment was conducted during the winter (rabi) seasons of 1996/97 and 1997/98 in Maharashtra, India, to find out suitable and economical combination of inter- and intra-row spacing with seedling tuber size of potato (Solanum tuberosum). Significant increase in the tuber yields was recorded due to spacing of 45 cm. The intra-row spacing of 10 cm was at par with 15 cm, but was significantly superior to 20 cm plant spacing. The tuber yield increased with the increase in seedling tuber size.
