The effect of microwave radiation on the germination process of stored potato tubers

Abstract: The purpose of the present paper was to study the effect of microwave radiation on the number and weight of sprouts appearing on potato tubers after its storage. The studies included three early potato cultivars (Felka Bona, Rosara and Velox), whose tubers were radiated with microwaves with the frequency of 2.45 GHz for the period of 10, 20 and 60 s. Results of the experiment show that microwave radiation significantly modifies the germination process of the stored potato tubers.
