Characterization of Adventitious Root Development in Sweetpotato
Results suggest the initial stages of adventitious root development are critical in determining storage root set in sweetpotato. Expand
Heritability Estimates for Micronutrient Compositionof Sweetpotato Storage Roots
The results suggest that traditional breeding strategies like mass selection could improve the micronutritional value ofsweetpotato and that true sweetpotato seed, which has no international phytosanitary restrictions on transfer, can be used to quickly estimate heritability. Expand
‘Murasaki-29’ Sweetpotato
‘Murasaki-29’ sweetpotato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.] was developed by the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station to provide a specialty-type white flesh, dark purple skin cultivar with southernExpand
Sweetpotato Clone Tolerance to Weed Interference
Yield of high-Yielding clones was impacted more by weed interference than was that of low-yielding clones, and short-internode and long- internode clones had similar competitive abilities. Expand
Carbohydrate-related changes in sweetpotato storage roots during development.
The quantity and pattern of carbohydrate-related changes during storage root development differed among six sweetpotato cultivars (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Poir. 'Beauregard', 'Heart-o-Gold', 'Jewel',Expand
Lutein Content in Sweetpotato Leaves
It is shown that sweetpotato leaves are an excellent source of dietary lutein and surpass levels found in leafy crucifers and may be a major source of lUTEin for commercial purposes. Expand
Identification and Expression of Skinning Injury-responsive Genes in Sweetpotato
The strategy is to screen for and breed for cultivars with a more durable skin, which can resist skinning, cosmetic desic- cation at wound sites, and fresh weight loss, and the genes up-regulated in response to skinning may be useful to identify expression markers for screening sweetpotato lines tolerant to skinned injury in breeding programs.

The Effect of the Sequence of Infection of the Causal Agents of Sweet Potato Virus Disease on Symptom Severity and Individual Virus Titres in Sweet Potato cv. Beauregard
The results indicate that the sequence of infection of sweetpotato plants with the causal agents of SPVD influence the severity of symptoms and SPFMV titres in SPVD affected plants. Expand
Studies on sweetpotato with chlorotic leaf distortion, caused by Fusarium lateritium
The results suggest that only young foliage is adversely affected by CLD and that the photosynthetic potentia... Expand
