Selection for improvement of potato solanum tuberosum populations grown from true seed


American Potato Journal 63(4): 207-217
Selection for improvement of potato solanum tuberosum populations grown from true seed
Field trials were conducted at Freeville, NY to determine if hybird seedling populations of Solanum tuberosum L. could be improved by two types of mass selection. Hill and bulk selections plus unselected controls were saved after harvesting tubers from transplanted seedlings of four Neo-Tuberosum .times. Tuberosum hybrids in 1982. Tubers from these three treatments were planted in a split plot design for comparison in 1983. Yields were increased 14 to 16% by hill selection; plants from this treatment were the largest and most vigorous. Uniformity of tuber shape and overall tuber appearance were improved by both hill and bulk selection.
