ABSTRACT

Frequent alternations of high and low temperatures and of rainy and dry weather, which were increasingly felt in recent decades have reduced harvests. Thus, the identification of varieties with genetic characteristics that provide a better adaptability presents a particular importance. Although a cultivar is known as the most important technological link in terms of production stability, the quantity and quality are influenced by the climatic conditions. Observations were conducted in the experimental fields of the Variety Testing Centre (V.T.C) of Targoviște, Dambovița county, during the years 2012 - 2014 and the objectives of the work were: the assessement of some potato genotypes adaptability, the behavior of 10 potato cultivars according to the environmental conditions in order to obtain high yields, the identification of genotypes that have low production variations in different climatic conditions.
