Plants obtained from selected seeds (achenes) yielded almost double the
number of flowers and the weight of tubers was larger by almost 25% when
compared with plants from non-selected seeds. The dates and method of
sowing seeds affected the number of flowers obtained from one tuber, and
the weight of tubers, but did not influence the quality of bloom. The
largest number of flowers per plant was obtained from the first date of
sowing (March 1) remaining in their place and at both dates (March 1 and
May 22) of direct sowing, the weight of tubers was larger by almost 45%
than the weight of tubers of pricked out plants. The production of seeds
decreased the weight of tubers by 30% as compared with plants from which
flowers and stalks were cut, and by 60% as compared with deflowered plants.
