Potatoes are usually kept in cold storage until required for the market. Storage conditions and length of time influence potato quality and their consequent susceptibility to handling. It is therefore important to determine how storage might modify their physico-mechanical properties. The aim of the study was to evaluate cultivar and storage time effects on potato physico-mechanical properties. Laboratory tests were conducted using two cultivars ( Solanum tuberosum L. cvs. Vivaldi and Primura… CONTINUE READING
