During 1964-7 potato Record, King Edward and Pentland Crown were weighed before and after storage in slatted pallet-based boxes (nominal capacity 1016 or 508 kg) in a ventilated potato store maintained at 7 degrees -10 degrees C. 136 boxes were weighed and a value of 1.4 m3/ton gave a satisfactory estimate of the capacity of such boxes. Average weight loss/day of potatoes in the stores was between 0.03 and 0.05%.
