CHAPTER 1 - THE POTATO AS A WORLD FOOD CROP, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO DEVELOPING AREAS. Douglas Horton and Richard L. Sawyer . Potato Physiology provides perspective and knowledge on the biological behavior and potentials of the potato plant. Organized into 15 chapters, this book focuses on tuber development physiology, biochemistry, and anatomy. This chapter describes the complex effects of photoperiod and temperature on the behaviour of potato crops. Short days and low temperatures reduce branching.
Potato roots are concentrated mostly in the plow layer up to 30 cm in soil depth. Some roots extend up to cm depth and the total root length throughout the. phenology, physiological age, plant breeding, plant cycle, plant maturity type, . particularly difficult to breed for as the physiology of potato shows a very strong. The tuber life cycle of potato (Solanum tuberosum) plants represents an low rates of nitrogen fertilization, and more advanced “physiological age” of the seed .
Abstract - Sprouting is one aspect of tuber physiological age that begins with potato tuber initiation. During sprouting, proteomic and physiological processes do.
