Origin & Breeding History: 'Golden Globe' (experimental designation US 624-95) originated from a cross between 'Berber', as the female parent, and 2.6 720-86, as the male parent, conducted in 1993 at the NORIKA Nordring, Kartoffelzucht und Vermehruns GmBH breeding station in Gross Luesewitz, Germany. In 1994, the seed resulting from the cross was sown in the greenhouse. The resulting tubers were harvested and planted in the field in 1995 in Gross Luesewitz, Germany. 'Golden Globe' was selected in 1995 based on negative mass selection for agronomic characteristics and disease resistance.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Golden Globe' was conducted by Global Agri Services Inc. during the 2019 growing season in Drummond, New Brunswick. The trial consisted of a single, 21 metre long row per variety. Each row contained 70 plants spaced 0.3 metres apart with an inter-row spacing of 0.9 metres. Measurements were taken from 10 plants, or 10 parts of plants, of each variety. The mean difference was significant at the 5% probability level based on a paired Student's t-test.
