Positioning the Potato as a Primary Food Source of Vitamin C
TLDR
A three-pronged approach can be used to increase the vitamin C content of potatoes involving breeding, improved crop management, and modification of cooking processes.
Breeding progress for potato chip quality in North American cultivars
TLDR
Evidence was provided that potato breeders have made significant progress in developing cultivars with good chip quality and that Lenape was a landmark cultivar and has been an important contributor to the observed breeding progress.
Selection for individual traits in the early generations of a potato breeding program dedicated to producing cultivars with tubers having long shape and russet skin
TLDR
The study defined the selectability of visible traits used for selection in the early generations of potato breeding to show positive selection to be possible for degree of skin russetting, and the incidence and severity of skin defects.
Ranger Russet: A long Russet potato variety for processing and fresh market with improved quality, disease resistance, and yield
TLDR
Ranger Russet is more resistant than Russet Burbank to Verticillium wilt, viruses X and Y, leafroll net necrosis, and Fusarium dry rot, and is highly resistant to hollow heart.
Defender: A high-yielding, processing potato cultivar with foliar and tuber resistance to late blight
TLDR
The potato cultivar Defender is high-yielding, white-skinned, and notable for having foliar and tuber resistance to late blight infection caused by Phytophthora infestans, making it an ideal candidate for organic potato production.
Differences in free and protein-bound tyrosine among potato genotypes and the relationship to internal blackspot resistance
TLDR
A remarkably constant level of total tyrosine production in the twelve potato clones studied, that represented diverse genetic backgrounds, indicates a remarkably constant levels of blackspot resistance.
Blackspot pigment development of resistant and susceptibleSolanum Tuberosum L. genotypes at harvest and during storage measured by three methods of evaluation
Blackspot pigment development was measured by three methods: 1) impact, 2) abrasive peeling, and 3) oxidation of tuber homogenates. Genotypes and storage periods were used as variable treatments. All
Photosynthesis and Stomatal Conductance of Potato Clones (Solanum tuberosum L.) : Comparative Differences in Diurnal Patterns, Response to Light Levels, and Assimilation through Upper and Lower Leaf
A few potato clones, such as A6948-4, had higher rates of photosynthesis in the field than the Russet Burbank and were able to maintain higher rates not only during mid-day but also in the early
