    potato growth across diverse environments and different cultivars must. take each of these variables into account. Numerous efforts. have. been made to simulate potato growth, ranging from. simple regression or correlative models based on temperature (e.g., Iritani, ; Manrique ind Bartholomew, ) to the mechanistic, organ-level model. quality sweet potatoes is to If using lime to raise pH, apply dolomitic lime because it also contains magnesium. Crop Rotation A three- to five-year rotation program will reduce the potential for disease development. Do not follow legumes because the resulting excessive nitrogen causes cracks, reduces yields of No. 1 sweet potatoes.

    Sweet potatoes need uniform watering with at least 1 inch of rainfall or irrigation water per week for normal growth. Water sufficiently to moisten the soil to a depth of at least 6 inches. Rainfall or irrigation after a long dry period may result in cracking of the sweet potatoes. Sweet potato can, and does, play a multitude of varied roles in the human diets being either supplemental or a luxury food besides being a staple crop for some parts of the world (Papua New Guinea, some parts of Philippines, Tonga and Solomon Islands) (Sosinski et al., ). In Asia countries, sweet potato uses range from.

Optimum growth requires mean temperatures of 24 °C (75 °F) or above, - mm (30 - 50 inches) of rainfall, abundant sunshine and moist nights.   The relationship between root morphological-physiological characteristics, yield and components of sweet potato Plant root morphology and physiological characteristics were closely correlated with growth and development of the above ground plant parts and yield formation.

Abundant water at this time causes the potato to swell and the skin to split. Sweet potato growth cracks from fertilizer also occurs.

Don’t toss a lot of nitrogen fertilizer on your sweet potatoes since this can also cause sweet potato growth cracks. It does produce lush vine growth, but splits the roots. Growth cracking is an external noninfectious physiological disorder of the potato tuber in which the tuber splits while growing.

The split heals but leaves a fissure in the tuber. Growth cracks generally start at the bud or apical end of the potato and can extend lengthwise.

Varieties of S weet Potatoes There are over varieties in the world but you have to plant the one that is widely eaten in your locality. In determinate varieties full bloom marks the end of vine growth, while in indeterminate varieties full bloom starts a noticeable slow-down of vine growth, some branching still occurs.

The first set of tubers are being initiated and these are in a slow-growth, development stage, the lag phase of tuber growth. Sweet potatoes do best with moderately fertile soil and little fertilization during the growing season.

Too much nitrogen fertilizer can result in extravagant vine growth and roots that are. The sweet potato is a large, sweet-tasting root of the morning glory family.

4 Growth stages Growth stages of plants, in very general terms, can be split into four periods: Establishment from planting or seeding during vegetative growth until first flower appears. From first flowering to first fruit set From fruit ripening to first harvest From first harvest to the end of last harvest.

These growth periods also represent different nutritional needs of the plant. Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) is a member of the morning glory (Convolvulaceae) family. The sweetpotato is not related to the Irish potato, which belongs to the nightshade (Solanaceae) family.
