Physico-chemical properties of starches isolated from potato cultivars grown in soils with different phosphorus availability
(Journal Of The Science Of Food And Agriculture, 2015) [Artigo]
Starch is the major component of potato tubers, amounting approximately to 150-200 g kg (-1) of the tuber weight. Starch is considered to be a major factor for the functionality of the potato in food applications. This ...
Cultivares, qualidade de tubérculos e comercialização da batata no Brasil
(Revista Raízes e Amidos Tropicais, 2011) [Artigo]
Currently, the potato is the 4th largest source of food for man, being surpassed in terms of production for wheat, corn and rice. Brazil represents 1% of potatoes world production, being self-sufficient in-nature potato ...
Phosphorus Uptake, Use Efficiency, and Response of Potato Cultivars to Phosphorus Levels
(Potato Research, 2015) [Artigo]
Utilization of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivars with greater phosphorus (P) efficiency and response to application of this nutrient is essential to maximize yield, mainly in tropical soils that usually have low P ...
Qualidade de tubérculos de batata da cultivar 'Atlantic' afetada pela adubação fosfatada
(Ciência Rural, 2015-08-01) [Artigo]
To evaluate the influence of phosphorus (P) fertilization on the potato tuber quality of the cultivar ‘Atlantic’ experiments were conducted in soils with medium (36 mg dm-3) and high (70 mg dm-3) P availability. The ...
Qualidade de tubérculos frescos de cultivares de batata em função da nutrição fosfatada
(Bragantia, 2015-03-01) [Artigo]
Phosphorus (P) is essential to increase tuber yield and nutritional quality of potato tubers. However, it is unclear whether the influence of P fertilization on quality of tubers produced can vary depending on the cultivar ...
Root morphology and phosphorus uptake by potato cultivars grown under deficient and sufficient phosphorus supply
(Scientia Horticulturae, 2014-12-17) [Artigo]
Information regarding the characteristics that affect P-uptake capacity may assist in the selection of more adapted potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivars and more adequate fertilization management for each cultivar. This ...
