This study compared tuber yield of three potato cultivars (Atlantic, Dakota Crisp, and Snowden) on three harvest dates (July 14, 21, and August 5). Dakota Crisp is a relatively new chipping and table stock potato released by North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2005. It is reported to have good yield potential and chipping characteristics. Atlantic and Snowden are currently the preferred cultivars in the Muscatine area being grown for processing into potato chips. This market niche requires a cultivar with quick emergence after planting, tolerance to warm summer growing conditions, early harvest capabilities, and acceptable chipping characteristics.
