Influence of storage conditions and duration on weight loss in storage field survival and root yield of sweet potato transplants ipomoea batatas cultivar georgia red



Influence of storage conditions and duration on weight loss in storage field survival and root yield of sweet potato transplants ipomoea batatas cultivar georgia red



Hortscience 20(2): 200-203



'Georgia Red' sweet potato plants were stored for 1, 2 and 3 wk at 5.degree., 16.degree. and 27.degree. C temperatures with and without bagging in perforated polyethylene. Storage conditions affected weight loss during all storage periods, but there was little difference in survival of transplants or root yield from plants stored for 1 wk compared with nonstored plants. Storage at 5.degree. for longer than 1 wk was unsatisfactory because of rapid decline in field survival and root yield. Storage at 16.degree. was superior to storage at 27.degree., and at 27.degree. bagged plants were superior to bare root plants from enhancing survival and yield when plants were stored for > 1 wk before transplanting.
