Effect of alkali salts on shape and appearance of russet burbank potatoes
- 26 Downloads
Off-type Russet Burkank potatoes, smooth-skinned and shaped like Rurals, transmitted the original varietal characteristics when grown in a normal soil.
Russet Burbank potatoes of certified seed stock, when grown in soils of high saline content, produced off-type potatoes with smooth skins.
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.
