Cutting Potatoes To Single Eyes





Some say only one eye to a piece; others say several eyes - which is

better?



In one experiment potatoes cut to single eyes with each piece weighing

one-sixteenth of an ounce yielded 44 bushels to the acre, while single

eyes on two-ounce pieces yielded 177 bushels to the acre. Experiments in

Indiana showed that the yield usually increased with the weight of the

set and that the exact number of eyes per cutting is relatively

unimportant.
