Variety used for comparison: 'Yukon Gold'
Summary: In relation to the base, the tip of the lightsprout is small for 'Salinero' whereas the tip of the lightsprout of 'Yukon Gold' is of medium size. The lightsprout of 'Salinero' has a medium number of root tips whereas the lightsprout of 'Yukon Gold' has few root tips. The plants of 'Salinero' are shorter than the plants of 'Yukon Gold'. 'Salinero' has no anthocyanin colouration on the stem whereas the anthocyanin colouration is of low extent along the entire stem for 'Yukon Gold'. The frequency of coalescence of the terminal and lateral leaflets of 'Salinero' is medium whereas the frequency is absent or very low for 'Yukon Gold'. At the apical rosette, the leaflet blade of 'Salinero' is pubescent whereas the leaflet blade of 'Yukon Gold' is glabrous. The anthocyanin colouration of the inner side of the corolla is of absent or very low extent and absent or very weak intensity for 'Salinero' whereas the anthocyanin colouration is of high extent and medium intensity for 'Yukon Gold'. In reaction to light, the tuber skin of 'Salinero' develops very weak intensity of anthocyanin colouration whereas the tuber skin of 'Yukon Gold' develops medium intensity of anthocyanin colouration.

Origin & Breeding History: 'Salinero' originated from a cross between the variety 'Mozart', as the female parent, and the variety 'Laura', as the male parent, conducted in 2002, at HZPC Holland B.V. in Metslawier, Netherlands. From the resulting progeny, 'Salinero' was selected in 2003 based on yield, internal and external tuber quality and resistance against different diseases and pests.
Tests & Trials: The comparative test and trial for 'Salinero' was conducted by Global Agri Services Inc. during the growing season of 2017 in Drummond, New Brunswick. There were 70 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. The trial consisted of a single, 21.2 metre long row with plants spaced 0.3 metres apart for each variety. The distance between rows within the trial was 0.9 metres. The observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants, or 10 parts of plants, of each variety. The mean differences were significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired Student's t-test.
