Yield variability among Katahdin seed sources
- 11 Downloads
Considerable yield differences were found among certified Katahdin seed sources. Some of this variability may be due to virus X and some due to cultural and storage practices. The amount of variability deviates from year to year. These differences in yield among sources might possibly be minimized through cultural and storage techniques in the seed-producing areas.
