End Date: Aug 14, 2014
To collect the chipping data, clones from the mapping population will be planted on Aroostook State Farm, Presque Isle, ME, in a randomized complete block design with three replications. Following harvest, specific gravity will be determined, and clones stored for processing from 10, 7 and 4 degrees C in January. Chip color will be measured visually and by Agtron. Tetraploid Map will be used to map SNPs from the mapping population to potato chromosomes and then the genotypic and phenotypic data will be analyzed to identify those markers linked to IHN, specific gravity, maturity, yield, and processing quality.
