Following a thermotherapy virus eradication procedure potato plantlets were multiplied as meristem clones in vitro. The agronomic traits of meristem clones were compared in field trials over three years. A total of 16 meristem clones of cultivar Agric dzeltenie and 10 of cultivar Juku were evaluated. There was a significant variation in the number and size of tubers per plant amongst clones. The yield of clones of cultivar Agric dzeltenie varied from 32.4 to 51.41 ha−1 and for cultivar Juku… CONTINUE READING
