<jats:p>Transplant crops derived from <jats:italic>in vitro</jats:italic> produced plantlets of cultivars differing in earliness were grown in three experiments in three years in the Netherlands, during field periods of maximally 12 weeks. Seed tuber crops were included in the first year. Fresh tuber yield was analysed as the result of the radiation intercepted by the crop's canopy (AIR; accumulated intercepted radiation), the efficiency of conversion of intercepted radiation into dry matter (RCC; radiation conversion coefficient), the proportion of dry matter allocated to tubers (HI; harvest index), and the tuber dry-matter concentration (TDMC). Transplant crop...
