Werner, H.O. (1929) Effect of cultural methods and maturity upon the seed value of eastern Nebraska potatoes (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 45)
Seed potatoes as good as northern stocks have been produced under a straw mulch in eastern Nebraska by experimenters and growers. Occasionally reports are heard that a lot of seed potatoes has been grown in eastern Nebraska by ordinary cultural methods for many years, apparently without loss of vigor or yielding capacity. In view of this situation it seemed advisable to investigate this problem to determine whether, and to what extent, environment and maturity as such influence the productivity of seed potatoes and also whether it is feasible to produce satisfactory seed potatoes in the southern and eastern portions of Nebraska.
