Abstract

Effect of type of planting material on yield and wilt incidence in potato.

Bacterial wilt (Pseudomonas solanacearum) was least when small whole tubers were used for planting, and these also gave the highest yields. When cut tubers were planted disease incidence was increased by > 2.5 times and yield reduced by > 40%.
