  author={D. R. L. Bonte and A. Villordon and C. Clark and P. Wilson and C. Stoddard},
‘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 southern root-knot nematode and soil rot resistance. ‘Murasaki29’ produces excellent numbers of uniform plants (sprouts) early in the production season. ‘Murasaki-29’ matures later than ‘Beauregard’ in Louisiana. The roots in Louisiana can be elliptical, but often are round and sometimes splits occur… Expand

Field Performance of Tissue-cultured, Virus-tested ‘Okinawan’ Sweetpotato and Comparison with Some Promising Cultivars in Hawai’i
Interestingly, in the second year, TC ‘Okinawan’ had greater rough sweetpotato weevil injury than did the other cultivars and that the other TC cultivars did not produce greater yields than TC Okinawan. Expand
Host preference of sweetpotato weevil, Cylas formicarius elegantulus (Summers): an example of Hopkins’ host-selection principle
A strong effect of host fidelity is indicated, supporting Hopkin’s HSP, on oviposition preference of SPW reared on different cultivars for a minimum of two generations, and it is confirmed that cv. Expand

Response of Sweetpotato Cultivars to Linuron Rate and Application Time
Investigation of the response of ‘Covington’ and ‘Murasaki-29’ sweetpotato cultivars to four rates of linuron alone or with S-metolachlor applied 7 or 14 d after transplanting (DAP) found injury (chlorosis/necrosis and stunting) to both cultivars was greater when linuron was applied with S+M as compared to linuron applied alone.

Phenotyping chlorogenic acids and coumarins in sweet potato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.] breeding lines for enhanced tolerance to periderm pathogens
CQAs appear to be more interesting compounds compared to coumarins for selecting breeding lines and chemotype assisted breeding should be a useful tool to reduce post-harvest losses and insect damage. Expand
Response of Sweetpotato Cultivars to S-metolachlor Rate and Application Time
Abstract Studies were conducted in 2008 and 2009 to determine the effect of S-metolachlor rate and application time on sweetpotato cultivar injury and storage root shape under conditions of excessiveExpand
