Abstract

The loss in weight suffered by stored potatoes is least when the storage temperature is 41°F. The increase in sucrose during storage was highest at 32°F., and this increase is corrJ,llated with the high respiration rate observed at that temperature. Weight losses were lower in small-sized potatoes than in larger ones. The losses were low when the potatoes were free from surface injuries. When injuries are present, it would be advantageous to subject them to a temperature of 104°F. for 16 hr. to stimulate the formation of a protective skin, and then to transfer them to cold storage. Seed potatoes stored at 50°F. give the highest yield when planted out in the field.
