The influence of some soil physical properties on potato yields and grade distribution

Abstract

Yields of U. S. No. 1 potatoes and numbers of deformed tubers were significantly correlated with air permeability near the surface and soil bulk densities down to 8 inches. Yields of No. 1 grade were correlated positively with soil air permeability and negatively with soil bulk density, whereas for deformed tuber production the correlations were the reverse… (More)
