Effect of alkali salts on shape and appearance of russet burbank potatoes

  • Earle C. Blodgett

  1. 1.

    Off-type Russet Burkank potatoes, smooth-skinned and shaped like Rurals, transmitted the original varietal characteristics when grown in a normal soil.

  2. 2.

    Russet Burbank potatoes of certified seed stock, when grown in soils of high saline content, produced off-type potatoes with smooth skins.

  3. 3.

    Soils from the same locality, upon which good potatoes were growing, produced similar off-type potatoes when treated with equivalent amounts of sodium sulfate and chloride salts.
