Werner, H.O. (1954) Influence of atmospheric and soil moisture conditions on diurnal variations in relative turgidity of potato leaves (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 176)
The experimental work reported herein was planned to determine: 1. The extent and nature of the changes of the relative turgidity (R.T.) of leaves of the potato plant during the diurnal cycle. 2. The extent to which R.T. of potato leaves is influenced by atmospheric conditions, soil moisture, variety and age of plants. 3. The extent to which visible evidence of water shortage in leaves is indicative of water loss from them as revealed by R.T. and the extent to which this relationship varies with different varieties. 4. The nature of the relationships between morphological characteristics of leaves and stems and the R .T. characteristics of the leaves of various potato plants.
