In parallel with the dwarfing effect of mountain environment on potatoes, virus development within the plants was inhibited. Tubers from crops grown in the mountains consistently had a low phosphorus and organic-acid content. When seed from these crops was grown in the lowlands the content of both phosphorus and organic acids in the tubers was higher as was their respiration rate. The probability that virus multiplication within the plant is dependent on factors affecting growth is discussed… CONTINUE READING
