It is important to go for certified seeds for the best harvest.The land should be prepared to a fine tilth and raised beds made for one to achieve uniform, large and smooth tubers
TFRI Director-General Chang Bin said the discovery of Tuber
elevatireticulatum has been published in Botanical Studies, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal.
Select small or medium-sized tubers
(1 1/2 inches in diameter) of typical appearance (no rattails).
Physical properties of tubers
yield: At harvesting stage a sample of 20 tubers
was randomly taken from each experimental block for determination of physical tuber
properties as following; average of tuber
diameter (cm), average of tuber
length (cm), average of tuber
volume (cm3/tuber) and average of tuber
specific gravity (g/cm3).
Potato occupies the first place in production among the tuber
crops in India.
Further genotype x environment interaction (GEI) and stability analyses were conducted for tuber
specific gravity and starch content since the mean squares of cultivar x location x season were significant for these traits.
In this respect, FYM supplies macro- as well as micronutrients and, accordingly, can fulfill the nutritional requirements of potato plants resulting in the tuber
In this context, the thermal sum method, which is based on the premise that plants respond to a thermal sum to complete each phase of development (PAL et al., 2005), may be a useful tool to estimate potato tuber
sprouting, facilitating post-harvest management.
 showed that the extract of Gliricidia sepium leaves 300 ml/l generated plants and potato tubers
were free from pests and diseases with the highest tuber
production (23.5 ton/ha).
However, TPS-9805 showed 1103 g micro, 553.7 g small, 645.2 g medium, and 269.7 g large tubers
with total tuber
weight of 2571 g m-1 and tuber
yield of 25.7 t ha-1.
Even though these varieties exhibit good tuber
characteristics, the comprehensive data regarding their processing and quality characteristics under local ecological and storage conditions need to be evaluated.
While in the case of tillers per mother tuber
per plot there was significant effect of different treatments over check.
