Cooperative potato clone and variety trials were conducted at 32 locations to determine field performance of selected clones and varieties grown under soil, climatic, and cultural management common to the potato growing areas of 12 cooperating states and the Province of New Brunswick, Canada. A few locations also evaluated storage and processing behavior of selected clones and varieties. These tests are contributions to Regional Project NE107 entitled, "Breeding and Evaluation of New Potato Clones for the Northeast." The primary objective of this project is to determine clone performance and stability over a wide range of soil, climate, and cultural conditions.
