Research Project: OPTIMIZING TUBER SET AND SIZE DISTRIBUTION FOR SEED, FRESH, AND PROCESSING MARKETS Project Number: 5354-21220-010-17
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 24, 2007
End Date: Jul 31, 2012

Objective:
Characterize factors that affect the quality or nutritional value of potatoes.

Approach:
Tubers from multiple genotypes will be analyzed for quality or nutritional value. Genotypes with traits useful to the potato industry such as tuber size and set or superior phytonutrients with be characterized. Factors influencing or controlling trait expression, such as molecular, developmental and environmental control will be characterized. Documents SCA with WSU. Formerly 5354-21220-002-30S (6/08).
