Morphological Characters of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) as Influenced by Local and Improved Cultivars Grown in Eastern Ethiopia

Helen Teshome


Field experiments were conducted at Haramaya and Hirna with the objective of assessing the morphological characteristics of local (farmers’) and improved potato cultivars during the main cropping season of 2011. The treatments consisted of five released cultivars (Badhasa, Chala, Chiro, Gabbisa, Zemen) and four local (farmers’) potato cultivars (Batte, Daddafa, Jarso, Mashenadima). The experiment was laid out as a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. There were significant differences within as well as between the farmers’ and released potato cultivars in a number of morphological characteristics.
