Besides yield reduction, several viruses cause economic losses by affecting potato quality, particularly by inducing internal and surface tuber necrosis. Postharvest Biology and Technology 26: 99–111. A The potato tubers look perfectly normal from the outside, but when cut open the flesh within is peppered with small rusty coloured spots. A non-destructive method for distinguishing intact potato tubers from those already exposed to mechanical damage (pressure and impact stresses) has been evaluated on three potato varieties (Agria, Marfona, and Diamant) using four pairs of ceramic ultrasonic transducers (25, 32.8, 40, and 50-kHz).

Brown center and hollow heart are internal noninfectious physiological disorders of the potato tuber. Biological. - 144.76.11.102. Heat Sprouting. Due to the higher average values of tangential elastic modulus in the Agria variety, it was concluded that the potato tubers of this variety are stiffer than those of Marfona and that; therefore, there is a higher ultrasonic attenuation in Agria tubers. Internal defects Internal necrosis Potato tuber Introduction Characterization Internal necrosis of potato tubers is characterized by reddish-brown flecks in patches of tuber parenchyma tissue. Article  These disorders make fresh-market tubers unattractive and can reduce repeat sales. These defects are significant and cause rejections of both ware and processing crops.
