Abstract

Losses during star age in potatoes are mainly due to sprouting and rotting. It has indicated that irradiation by low dose (50 to 100 Gy) during the dormancy period is most e ffective for sprout inhibition. Some investigators, however , stated an increase of storage rot after an irradiation treatment. The effect of wound healing temperature and period, irradiation dose and post irradiation starage temperature are tested on potatoes infected with Fusarium sulfurium.
