The underlying process of premature tuber formation was assumed to be loss of water by removal of sprouts during storage, resulting in an increase in the concentration of solutes. Essentially the same occurs with normal tuber formation but there by an increase in assimilates. This concept was supported by plasmolysis studies in the hairs of the sprouts.
