Tuber maturation and potato storability: Optimising skin set, sugars, and solids

Author(s): Alvin J. Bussan, Robert P. Sabba, Michael J. Drilias

Maximizing the value of the stored potato crop in Wisconsin requires careful crop management based on an understanding of the four distinct processes that lead to optimal tuber maturity. Each process is described in this detailed publication, along with recommended management practices that increase the likelihood of producing potatoes with good storability.

This publication is one in a series of three relating to potato crop production in Wisconsin.
