The validity of the specific gravity-dry matter relationship in potato tubers is affected by factors such as variety, area of production and storage conditions. Previous work reported by Woodbury and Weinheimer (10) showed that regression coefficients for percent dry matter on specific gravity increased with storage length. Ross and co-workers (8) reported an increase in percent dry matter for a given specific gravity over the storage season. Statistically significant differences among… CONTINUE READING
