dc.description.abstractA comparative yield trial with thirty-six named varieties and numbered selections of potatoes was conducted at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station’s (AFES) Palmer Research Center during the 1987 growing season. The trial was conducted at the Matanuska Research Farm, located 6 miles west o f Palmer on Trunk Road. Nonirrigated trials have been conducted each year beginning in 1982, and irrigated trials were begun in 1985. Results of previous trials have been recorded in Circulars 49, 54, and 58, available at the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station offices in Fairbanks and Palmer. Varieties with a history of commercial production in the Matanuska Valley (including 'Alaska 114', 'Bakeking', 'Green Mountain', 'Kennebec', and 'Superior') are included and serve as a comparative base for newly developed varieties, numbered selections, or older varieties that heretofore have not been tested at this location. Varieties that com pare favorably with the above-listed standards may warrant some consideration by commercial growers. Also included in this report are the results of abbreviated versions of the AFES potato yield trial that were conducted by cooperating individuals and agencies at nine locations throughout the state.en_US
