The last decade in 38 years of potash studies for potato fertilizers in Maine
SummaryThe results of a 10-year source of potash study indicate: 1) source of potash did not influence yield of potatoes, 2) sulfate and nitrate of potash were equal in their effect on the productionExpand
Effect of tetrachloronitrobenzene (Fusarex) on emergence and yield of potatoes. Part II. — Northeast
TLDR
Seed potatoes of the Katahdin, Kennebec, and Pungo varieties were treated with Fusarex dust containing 6% tetrachloronitrobenzene at three dates in Maine during 1961–62 storage season, resulting in delayed initial plant emergence of all varieties at all locations. Expand
Effect of date and method of kill on yield, specific gravity and other quality factors of maine potatoes
TLDR
Results of an attempt to combine the effects of time, method and rate of kill on yield, appearance, and total solids content of potatoes of four potato varieties are presented. Expand
Effect of storage temperature and size on French fry quality, shrinkage and specific gravity of Maine potatoes
TLDR
Lots of tubers of the Greeh Mountain, Katahdin, Kennebec, Mohawk, and Teton varieties were sized and placed in storage at 36°, 40°, and 50° in early November, 1949, and shrinkage and specific gravity were determined at approximately monthly intervals, and French frying tests were made. Expand
Potato vine killing methods as related to rate of kill, vascular discoloration, and virus disease spread
TLDR
The amount of vascular discoloration produced by vine-killing tended to increase with age of the plants until the plants were maturing rapidly, at which time there was a decline in the amount ofDiscoloration. Expand
Effect of physiological maturity and storage temperature on emergence and yield of potatoes
TLDR
Seed stored at 38F was more productive than seed stored at 32F or 45F and semillas almacenadas a 38F fueron más productivas than las almacens a 32F o a 45F from the results of this study. Expand
Effect of three viruses on yield, specific gravity, and chip color of potatoes in Maine
TLDR
A two-year study to measure the effect of three virus diseases on yield, specific gravity, and chip color, of the Katahdin and Kennebec potato varieties found that leaf roll reduced yields of tubers the most. Expand
