The role of type of seed in the culture of potato II Influence of number of eyes in a seed piece and size of seed tuber on growth, yield and grade of potato



The role of type of seed in the culture of potato II Influence of number of eyes in a seed piece and size of seed tuber on growth, yield and grade of potato



Indian Jour Hort: 11-18



Sets of 20 g. each of Darjeeling Red Round potatoes, having from 1 to 5 eyes, gave yields of almost equal wt., but the no. of potatoes increased with the no. of eyes. The avg. size of potato from the 1-eyed sets was 22.72 g., compared to 15.51 g. from sets with 5 eyes each. When whole potatoes weighing from 5 to 40 g. were planted, the yield per hill increased and the avg. size of tuber decreased with the increase in the size of the sets.
