  • Potato Cultivar and Seed Type Affect the Development of Systemic Potato
           virus Y (PVY N-Wi ) Infection
    • Authors: Elisa Boyd; Eileen Carpenter; Brian T. Ross; Nina Zidack; Michelle L. Flenniken
      Abstract: Abstract Potato virus Y (PVY) infection is one of the greatest challenges to seed potato production in the United States. To determine how cultivar and seed type affect the development of systemic PVY infection, Russet Burbank and Russet Norkotah Colorado 3 cultivars were grown from two types of pre-nuclear seed (i.e., plantlets and minitubers) and Generation 3 (G3) tubers and challenged with PVY strain Wilga (PVYN-Wi). Systemic PVY infection was measured by assaying spread of virus from the inoculation site to upper non-inoculated leaves. The Burbank cultivar had a lower incidence of systemic PVY infection compared to the incidence of systemic PVY that developed in the Colorado 3 cultivar. Furthermore, Burbank plants grown from G3 tubers had a lower incidence of systemic PVY infection, as compared to Burbank plants grown from plantlets. Together our results indicate that both cultivar and seed type affect the development of systemic PVYN-Wi infections post-inoculation.

  • Pomerelle Russet: an Early Maturing Potato Variety with High Yields of
           U.S. No. 1 Tubers Suitable for Fresh Market and mid-Storage Processing and
           Tolerance to Potato Mop-top Virus
    • Authors: J. C. Stark; R. G. Novy; J. L. Whitworth; N. R. Knowles; M. J. Pavek; M. Thornton; C. R. Brown; B. A. Charlton; V. Sathuvalli; T. L. Brandt; N. Olsen; S. Yilma
      Abstract: Abstract Pomerelle Russet is an early maturing fresh potato variety, which produces moderately high early-season (95–110 days after planting) yields of long tubers with brown-russet skin. It is notable for its very attractive, smooth tubers and resistances to internal and external defects with a high percentage of U.S. No. 1 tubers. Fresh merit ratings for Pomerelle Russet in trials conducted in Idaho, Oregon and Washington were consistently higher than Russet Burbank and Russet Norkotah. Early harvest yields for Pomerelle Russet are generally comparable to Russet Norkotah with a higher percentage of U.S. No. 1 tubers. Compared to Russet Burbank and Russet Norkotah, Pomerelle Russet has greater resistance to Potato mop-top virus, soft rot, corky ringspot and tuber infections from late blight. It also has higher protein and vitamin C concentrations than Ranger Russet, Russet Burbank and Russet Norkotah, indicating that it can provide an enhanced level of dietary protein and vitamin C relative to these standard potato varieties. Pomerelle Russet has moderate specific gravity and good resistance to sugar ends. It also has moderately long dormancy, about 30 days shorter than Russet Burbank. Average post-harvest processing ratings for Pomerelle Russet were similar to Ranger Russet and greater than Russet Burbank. Pomerelle Russet also has maintained acceptable fry color for about 180–200 days in storage at 8.9 °C, indicating potential for processing out of mid-term storage, with improved fry color uniformity relative to industry standards. However, its primary use appears to be as a high quality, early fresh variety.

  • Germplasm Release: Three Tetraploid Potato Clones with Resistance to
           Common Scab
    • Authors: Shelley Jansky; David Douches; Kathleen Haynes
      Abstract: Abstract Common scab caused by the soil-borne bacterium Streptomyces scabies is a serious disease for the potato industry. We have identified a strong source of resistance in the diploid wild relative Solanum chacoense. This resistance has been introgressed into tetraploid cultivated potato via unilateral sexual polyploidization. This paper describes three hybrid clones (M8, M16, M17) for use by potato breeding programs to enhance resistance to common scab. They were created by crossing a diploid clone (50% S. tuberosum, 50% S. chacoense) to tetraploid cultivars, producing hybrids with 75% cultivated and 25% wild germplasm. The clones are male and female fertile, and are adapted to temperate zone production environments.

  • Extra Soil Fertilization of Mother Plants Increases Botanical Seed Yield
           But Not Long-Term Germination in Wild Solanum (potato) Species
    • Authors: John Bamberg; Charles Fernandez; Alfonso del Rio
      Pages: 583 - 587
      Abstract: Abstract Potato has about 100 wild species relatives that are multiplied in the form of botanical seed populations by genebanks, and distributed for use in research and breeding, so factors that affect long term seed germination are of interest. In 1987 the US Potato Genebank conducted routine seed multiplication on 127 populations of 31 species as greenhouse-grown potted plants. Half of the parent plants in each population were given two doses of liquid fertilizer in addition to the standard slow-release granular fertilizer which had been mixed into the medium for all plants. Plants with this extra liquid fertilizer application grew larger, and produced significantly more fruit and seeds. However, seeds from parents fertilized extra did not have improved seed weight or germination after 26 years of storage. We conclude that optimizing the fertilizer regime used on parent plants, while doubling the average seed yield, does not result in higher quality seeds.

    • Authors: Christian T. Christensen; Lincoln Zotarelli; Kathleen G. Haynes; James Colee
      Pages: 588 - 598
      Abstract: Abstract The precise level of environmental control in vitro may aid in identifying genetically superior plant germplasm for rooting characteristics (RC) linked to increased foraging for plant nitrogen (N). The objectives of this research were to determine the phenotypic variation in root morphological responses of 49 Solanum chacoense (chc), 30 Solanum tuberosum Group Phureja – Solanum tuberosum Group Stenotomum (phu-stn), and three Solanum tuberosum (tbr) genotypes to 1.0 and 0.5 N rate in vitro for 28 d, and identify genotypes with superior RC. The 0.5 N significantly increased density of root length, surface area, and tips. All RC were significantly greater in chc than in either phu-stn or tbr. Based upon clustering on root length, surface area, and volume, the cluster with the greatest rooting values consisted of eight chc genotypes that may be utilized to initiate a breeding program to improve RC in potato.

      Pages: 599 - 605
      Abstract: Abstract To improve potato yield in the Yinshan hilly area in Inner Mongolia of China, we implemented a novel cultivation method, i.e., the mini-ridge with covering and side planting (MCSP), based on local meteorological conditions and soil characteristics, and the growth and developmental process of potato. Data from four years of field experiments and laboratory simulation indicate that: 1) the yield of rain-fed potato under the MCSP method increased significantly, by 34% and 48% over yields obtained from the traditional methods of flat cultivation with covering (FC), and flat cultivation with no covering (FNC), respectively; 2) Compared to the FC and FNC methods, MCSP increased the rain water productivity by 15–53% and 28–74%; 3) MCSP increased water content in the top 20 cm of soil, and changed the distribution pattern of soil water by enhancing its vertical movement while reducing its lateral transport, thereby concentrating soil water into the root zone for improved root development.

  • Nitrogen and Phosphorus Use Efficiency in Improved Potato ( Solanum
           tuberosum L.) Cultivars in Southern Ethiopia
    • Authors: Gebru Hailu; Dechassa Nigussie; Mohammed Ali; Belew Derbew
      Pages: 617 - 631
      Abstract: Abstract Use of nutrient efficient crop species or cultivars within species in combination with improved crop production practices offer the best option for meeting the future food requirements of growing world populations. Efficiency improvement has a key role for nutrient use and it improves both productivity of yield and minimizes risks of losses that potentially harm the environment. To improve nutrient use efficiency (NUE), one strategy is to select cultivars of crops with high NUE. Both nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are among essential macronutrients commonly applied to agricultural crops to optimize yields. Evaluation of potato cultivars with high N and P efficiency is essential for sustainable production of the crop. In Ethiopia, however, little research has been done to elucidate better NUE of potato crop until recently. This study was, thus, designed to evaluate selected potato cultivars (Belete, Gudene, Jalene, Marachere and one local check) for NP use efficiency under low levels of the nutrients in Wolaita Sodo University, Ethiopia during 2014 and 2015. Factorial combination of 3 levels of each N (0, 55.5 and 111 kg N ha−1 ) and P (0, 19.5 and 39 kg P ha−1 ) were assigned to the main plots and the 5 cultivars to subplots of split-plot design in three replications. Efficiency indices such as agronomic efficiency, physiological efficiency and recovery efficiency were computed for combined NP nutrients. Results showed that agronomic nitrogen use efficiency, apparent phosphorus use efficiency and phosphorus use efficiencies were significantly influenced by the interaction effect of rates of NP nutrition and variety. Application of NP more than 55.5:19.5 kg ha−1 will not beneficial due to their less or equal use and recovery efficiencies to 55.5:19.5 kg NP ha−1. Belete was the most NP efficient variety followed by Jalene and Gudene in all efficiency indices. Therefore, Belete, Jalene and Gudene return better for NP at 55.5:19.5 kg ha−1 for economical use of fertilizes while obtaining satisfactory yield. It can be concluded that yield response variation of the varieties was related to their differences in NP uptake and use efficiencies; and the improved potato varieties were superior to local check in using NP nutrients efficiently.

  • Analysis of Potato Mop-Top Virus Survival Probability in Post-Harvest
    • Authors: S. K. R. Yellareddygari; Owusu Domfeh; Francisco G. Bittara; Neil C. Gudmestad
      Pages: 632 - 637
      Abstract: Abstract Potato mop top virus (PMTV) induced necrosis can cause tuber quality loss at harvest and storage. Stored potatoes help maintain a constant supply of potatoes to the market and processing industry. PMTV-induced necrosis continues to develop during storage and appropriate timelines are needed for growers to make marketing decisions of their potatoes before incurring any significant quality losses. Survival analysis was used to estimate the time to event occurrence (PMTV-induced necrosis) in four (red-, russet-, white-, and yellow-skinned) potato market types across six post-harvest assessments conducted over two years. At each assessment the presence and absence of PMTV-induced necrosis was recorded and probability of tuber survival was estimated. Survival curves were significantly different among the four market type potato cultivars (Log-Rank test, P < 0.0005). Red- and russet-market type cultivars showed low and high survival probability, respectively, demonstrating that red cultivars need priority marketing. The survival probabilities decreased with increased storage time during both years, indicating that PMTV-induced necrosis development is dependent on potato cultivar and post-harvest storage. The median (50% of tubers with symptoms) survival times were estimated as 167 and 214 days for red- and other market type potato cultivars. The information from this study could potentially help growers regulate storage times for their cultivars to minimize tuber quality loss due to PMTV-induced tuber necrosis.

  • High Levels of Heterozygosity Found for 15 SSR Loci in Solanum chacoense
    • Authors: Kathleen G. Haynes; Haitham E. M. Zaki; Christian T. Christensen; Elizabeth Ogden; Lisa J. Rowland; Matthew Kramer; Lincoln Zotarelli
      Pages: 638 - 646
      Abstract: Abstract Wild species-related germplasm is widely used to introduce new alleles and/or increase heterozygosity in cultivated species. Twenty-four SSR markers, specifically designed for cultivated potatoes, were evaluated to determine the extent of genetic variation within and among ten accessions of Solanum chacoense (chc). Fifteen of these markers were informative: there was no polymorphism in one of the markers, four of the markers showed evidence that more than one locus was being amplified, and the other four markers failed to consistently amplify products. Heterozygosity in these 10 accessions ranged from 33% to 87%. Variation among accessions was the largest proportion of variance for three markers, variation among genotypes within accessions was the largest proportion for three markers, and for the other nine markers variation within genotypes (chromosome to chromosome) was the largest proportion. Genetic similarity averaged 29.5% across markers. Where accessions have already been screened and found to possess the trait of interest, multiple genotypes from those accessions should be evaluated to identify genotypes with the greatest expression of the trait.

  • Rapid Screening of Potato Cultivars Tolerant to Nitrogen Deficiency Using
           a Hydroponic System
    • Authors: Xiaofang Xie; Xiu-Qing Li; Bernie J. Zebarth; Suyan Niu; Ruimin Tang; Helen H. Tai; Benoit Bizimungu; Weiren Wu; Muhammad Haroon
      Abstract: Abstract Increased cultivar tolerance to nitrogen (N) deficiency may increase productivity and reduce environmental impact of potato crops. In this study we screened 20 cultivars for the tolerance to N-deficient (0.05 mM nitrate) in comparison with N-abundant (7.5 mM nitrate) nitrate supply using plantlets grown for 15 days in a recirculating hydroponic system. Nitrogen deficiency increased the root-to-shoot ratio in 18 cultivars. Plant total dry weight (TDW) was reduced by an average of 61% under N-deficient nitrate supply. Tolerance to N deficiency was assessed as the TDW ratio (TDWR), calculated as the ratio of TDW under N-deficient to N-abundant nitrate supply. The cultivars Norland, Raritan, Nipigon and Langlade were significantly more tolerant to nitrogen deficiency (greater TDWR) than Eramosa, Carleton, and Epicure. The results indicate that the hydroponic system has capacity to rapidly screen a large number of cultivars for tolerance to N deficiency.

  • Transmission of Scab Resistance to Tetraploid Potato Via Unilateral Sexual
    • Authors: Shelley Jansky; David Douches; Kathleen Haynes
      Abstract: Abstract Resistance to common scab continues to be a high priority trait for potato breeders. We have identified a source of resistance in the diploid wild potato relative Solanum chacoense and have introgressed it into cultivated potato by crossing it to a dihaploid. A clone generated by crossing two full-sib hybrids is highly resistant and produces both 2n pollen and 2n eggs. This clone, named 4–48, is homozygous for a major QTL for scab resistance derived from S. chacoense. Clone 4–48 was reciprocally crossed to three round white cultivars Megachip, Pike, and White Pearl. Common scab resistance was transferred to tetraploid offspring, with transmission through the male parent generally more effective than through the female parent. The majority of progeny (70%) exhibited stability for resistance to common scab across environments. This germplasm will be useful for breeding new resistant cultivars.

  • Impact of Seed Cutting and Seed-Borne Inoculum on Daughter Tuber Common
           Scab and Plant Growth
    • Authors: Bryan J. Webster; Yu Chen; Amanda J. Gevens
      Abstract: Abstract Common scab (CS), caused primarily by the filamentous, soilborne bacterium Streptomyces scabies, creates significant challenges in the production of quality potato tubers in global growing regions. Over the past several decades, numerous studies been conducted to improve our understanding of the impact of cultural and pesticide treatments for managing the health of progeny daughter tubers. None of the previous studies, however, have addressed differences between the impacts of CS from whole seed vs. cut seed pieces on resulting disease on daughter tubers. A greenhouse trial was conducted during 2013–2014 to assess the impact of seed type and CS severity on plant health and CS on daughter tubers. Cut and suberized ‘Snowden’ seed pieces (~2 oz.) exhibiting 0, 5, and ≥50% CS severity were sown in 3-gal pots containing a 50:50 mix of sterilized sand and field soil. Whole ‘Snowden’ seed tubers (~2 oz.) with the same three levels of CS severity were sown under the same conditions. At harvest, approximately 20% of daughter tubers from asymptomatic seed pieces (both cut and whole) exhibited symptoms of CS. Disease incidence and severity significantly increased for pieces that had 5 and ≥50% CS across both experiments. Plants grown from whole seed had significantly higher yield, on average, when compared to cut seed. Daughter tubers produced from whole seed resulted in higher CS incidence than those from cut seed in one of our two experimental trials. Our results indicated a clear advantage to plant common scab-free seed potatoes with the aim of producing healthier daughter tubers.

  • An Evaluation of two H1 -Linked Markers and their Suitability for
           Selecting Globodera rostochiensis Resistant Potatoes in the New York
           Breeding Program
    • Authors: Jaebum Park; Huijun Yang; Walter S. De Jong; Xiaohong Wang
      Abstract: Abstract The golden cyst nematode (Globodera rostochiensis) is a serious pest that can dramatically reduce potato crop yield. Pathotype Ro1 of G. rostochiensis was first detected in the United States in 1941 and is still present on several farms in New York State. The H1 gene confers high levels of resistance to pathotype Ro1 but screening for it with a bioassay is time consuming and expensive. In this study two known molecular markers, 57R and TG689, were evaluated for their ability to identify resistant clones among 38 global cultivars and 350 New York breeding clones. The ability of either marker to predict resistance was high – 99.7% and 98.3% for 57R and TG689, respectively – but the ability to predict susceptibility was much lower, 47% and 41%, respectively. As resistance is the trait of interest, either of these markers is sufficient to make selection decisions in a practical breeding program. Cases exhibiting discordance between presence/absence of diagnostic markers and bioassay results were investigated further. Recombination, inflow of other resistance genes, and occasional failure of marker- and/or bio-assays are discussed as potential causes.

  • The Low Potential of Teff ( Eragrostis tef ) as an Inoculum Source for
           Verticillium dahliae
    • Authors: Z. A. Frederick; D. A. Johnson
      Abstract: Abstract Teff (Eragrostis tef) is a fine stemmed annual grass and gluten free small grain that is of interest as a forage, cover, or a rotation crop. Little is known about the susceptibility of teff to many diseases. Teff could be grown in rotation with potato in the northwestern United States provided teff cultivation is economical and does not increase soil populations for pathogens affecting rotation crops such as Verticillium dahliae. Verticillium dahliae infects a wide range of dicotyledonous plants, making it one of the most important fungal pathogens of crop plants in North America, including potato. The objective of this study was to quantify the susceptibility of teff to eight V. dahliae isolates and compare the susceptibility of teff to eggplant. Teff was confirmed as a host for V. dahliae, as indicated by the presence of microsclerotia in teff stems and roots after artificial inoculation in two years of greenhouse studies. The number of microsclerotia produced in teff did not differ between mint and potato pathotypes of V. dahliae. No V. dahliae isolate produced significantly greater numbers of microsclerotia than any of the seven other isolates tested in a two-year study. Microsclerotia production of V. dahliae in teff was consistently less than in susceptible eggplant cv. Night shadow in both greenhouse experiments (P < 0.02). It is unlikely that teff infected by V. dahliae will proliferate microsclerotia of mint or potato-aggressive pathotypes, especially when compared to susceptible eggplant cultivars.

  • Economic and Risk Effects of Rotation Based on a 14-Year Irrigated Potato
           Production Study in Manitoba
    • Authors: Mohammad Khakbazan; Ramona M. Mohr; Jianzhong Huang; Erik Campbell; Karl M. Volkmar; Dale J. Tomasiewicz; Alan P. Moulin; Doug A. Derksen; Byron R. Irvine; Debra L. McLaren; Alison Nelson
      Abstract: Abstract Crop rotations can be used to optimize economic return by preserving or enhancing soil quality and reducing pest pressure. A field experiment consisting of six rotations of potato with canola (P-C), wheat (P-W), canola-wheat (P-C-W), oat-wheat (P-O-W), wheat-canola-wheat (P-W-C-W), and canola underseeded to alfalfa-alfalfa-alfalfa (P-C(A)-A-A) organized in a Randomized Complete Block Design was established on a clay loam soil in Manitoba, Canada and monitored for fourteen years to assess the relative economic performance of potato in each rotation. A stochastic budget based on returns and risk of returns trade-offs was used to determine each rotation’s profitability. While differences in average annual net income of all crops between rotations were not significant, the P-C-W rotation was the most stable. Despite the economic advantage of P-C in the first two cycles, longer P-C-W or P-C(A)-A-A rotations are recommended, as two-year rotations increase plant disease and decrease economic viability in the long run.

  • Characterisation of Nanoestructured Potato Starch Powders with Blackberry
           ( Rubus fruticosus Var. Brazos) Juice
    • Authors: H. E. Romero-Luna; E. Azuara; C. I. Beristain; J. J. Chanona-Pérez; A. Hernández-Mendoza; M. Jiménez
      Abstract: Abstract Potato starch has been used in the protection of antioxidants, but its use is limited due to its physicochemical properties. The objective of this work was to evaluate the effect of physical modification of potato starch by gelatinization, spray-freezing on liquid nitrogen and freezing in liquid nitrogen on the physicochemical properties and stability of powders added with blackberry juice. Frozen potato starch with liquid nitrogen exhibited higher colour retention and anthocyanins during processing, as well as adequate physicochemical and flow properties. While the spray-frozen starch on liquid nitrogen had a higher retention of anthocyanins, polyphenols and antioxidant activity during storage under controlled conditions. Atomic force microscopy revealed the modification in the microstructure of the developed powders. These results demonstrated that the microstructure of the powders was modified by conferring changes in the water adsorption capacity affecting their physicochemical properties and their stability during storage.

      Abstract: Abstract Reveille Russet (ATX91137-1Ru) is a uniform, medium-early, high yielding, high pack-out, fresh market russet cultivar, with wide adaptability, released by Texas A&M AgriLife Research in 2015. It resulted from a cross of Bannock Russet(♀) and breeding clone A8343–12(♂). Reveille Russet produces attractive, oblong tubers, with medium russeting, white flesh and excellent culinary qualities. It has a lower incidence of internal defects and a higher percentage of marketable tubers in the 170 to 284 g and 284 to 510 g (6 to 10 oz. and 10 to 18 oz.) size classes than Russet Norkotah. Reveille Russet is resistant to hollow heart, second growth and blackspot bruise. It also stores longer and tends to wound-heal to a lighter brown color upon skinning during harvest and/or handling than Russet Norkotah.

  • Impact of Canopy Destruction from Simulated Hail on Potato Yield and
           Economic Return
    • Authors: M. J. Pavek; Seth Shelton; Z. J. Holden; B. J. Weddell
      Abstract: Abstract Insurance against hailstorm-inflicted losses to potato crops is crucial for producer risk management. Insurance providers need regionally specific information on which to base estimates of hail damage. The objective of the research reported here was to determine the effects of a range of simulated hail defoliation treatments, low (33%), medium (66%), and high (99%), relative to an untreated control (0%) on yield and grower economic returns from one medium- and one late-maturing potato variety (‘Russet Norkotah TX278’ and ‘Ranger Russet,’ respectively) at three growth stages (tuber initiation, early bulking, and late bulking) in the Columbia Basin of Washington. Plants within the 33% and 66% treatments were defoliated by sweeping a garden rake with 16 solid, curved tines through the canopy of each treatment row several times until plants exhibited the desired defoliation level. Tuber initiation and early bulk plants within the 99% treatment were essentially mowed to ground level. Intensity of defoliation and stage of growth had significant, interacting effects on grower returns. Gross return and yield for both varieties at each growth stage were significantly reduced by 99% defoliation; these effects were mediated by the effects of defoliation on tuber size distribution. Total yield and gross return experienced the largest declines at early bulk compared with tuber initiation and late bulk defoliation in both varieties. When 99% of the early bulk foliage was removed, Russet Norkotah TX278 gross return and yield were reduced to 14% and 38%, respectively, of the values for the non-treated control, and Ranger Russet gross return and yield were reduced to 30% and 51% of control values, respectively. Defoliation of 99% at all growth stages significantly reduced overall market yield compared to controls for both varieties. However, tuber size distribution was most affected by 99% defoliation at early bulk. Severe defoliation (99%) at tuber initiation significantly delayed vine senescence in both varieties. The results of this study suggest that insurance adjusters should take into account the combined influence of growth stage and defoliation level when hail damage occurs.

  • Potato Plants Grown from Minitubers are Delayed in Maturity and Lower in
           Yield, but are not at a Higher Risk of Potato virus Y Infection than
           Plants Grown from Conventional Seed
    • Authors: Ana C. Fulladolsa; Kyle E. LaPlant; Russell L. Groves; Amy O. Charkowski
      Abstract: Abstract Potato virus Y (PVY) is the most important virus in North American seed potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) production. Planting virus-free minitubers in place of field-grown seed, which usually has a low PVY incidence, reduces initial PVY inoculum in the field. However, plants grown from minitubers are smaller and emerge later than those grown from conventional seed, which could make them more likely to become infected with PVY. We tested the effects of seed type of three potato cultivars (Dark Red Norland, Goldrush, and Red La Soda) on PVY incidence, tuber yield, and flowering time. The incidence of PVY in plants grown from minitubers did not differ from that of plants grown from conventional seed. Minituber-grown plants produced lower tuber yields than plants grown from conventional seed. Plants from minitubers also emerged and flowered later, but this did not increase their incidence of PVY. Cultivar-specific differences were observed in tuber yield and flowering times, suggesting that this variation may influence PVY incidence more than seed type.

  • High-Resolution Aerial Imaging Based Estimation of Crop Emergence in
    • Authors: Sindhuja Sankaran; Juan José Quirós; N. Richard Knowles; Lisa O. Knowles
      Abstract: Abstract Plant emergence and stand establishment are key indicators of early crop development that are routinely assessed in potato agronomy and crop improvement research. The standard method for evaluating emergence is through manual plant counts at regular intervals. In this proof-of-concept study, unmanned aerial vehicles integrated with multispectral imaging were used for high-throughput evaluation of crop emergence under field conditions. High-resolution aerial imaging was performed at 15 m above ground level to capture data from potato plots of two varieties (‘Alturas’ and ‘Payette Russet’) in which the seed had been treated with different concentrations of growth regulators (including non-treated controls). The treatments resulted in differences in plant emergence and establishment. The images were collected at 32, 37, and 43 days after planting (DAP). Image-based features such as plant count, SUM-NDVI, and SUM-BINARY were computed from normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) images for each treatment plot using ArcGIS®. The Pearson’s correlation coefficients (r) were significant (p < 0.05) between image-based plant counts (r = 0.82) and SUM-NDVI (r = 0.62-0.73) with that of manual plant counts for both varieties, especially at early growth stages (32 DAP) when differences in emergence among treatments were more pronounced. The treatment effects on plant emergence and establishment were effectively resolved in the aerial multispectral images. Selection of the pertinent polygon threshold area to eliminate noise in delineating individual plants during image processing was important for resolution of treatment effects. The data shows that the technique can be applied in potato establishment evaluation.
