Abstract

The scope of genetic variation in concentrations of minerals in potato tubers and effects of mineral fertilizers application, pesticides, growth regulators on the mineral content and the relationships of these elements in potato tubers, was analyzed. The study discussed the phenotypic variation range determined by genetic and environmental variability. The hypothesis presupposes that increased yields generated either by the application of mineral fertilizers and/or the use of cultivars with higher fertility may lead to a reduction in the concentration of minerals in potato tubers, was verified in the study.
