Effects of plot size and selection intensity on efficiency of selection in the first clonal generation of potato

Abstract

To improve efficiency of selection in first year clones, investigations were carried out on the use of two-plant plots instead of one-plant ones. Extended plot size did reduce the environmental variance of characters connected with tuber yield, but had only a slightly positive effect on the selection result, as was concluded from a comparison between the… (More)
