    The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosum of the Solanaceae family (also known as the nightshades). The word may refer to the plant itself as well as the edible tuber. In the region of the Andes, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world's cuisine. It is the world's fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat and...

  • AT A POTATO DIGGING - 1943 Words
    This is a poem concerned with Irish history. Looming over the scene depicted is the spectre of the potato famine that afflicted Ireland from 1845-49. The potato crop, staple for the Irish, failed, and with cataclysmic results. About half the population of three million died, while a million people emigrated – many to America. The first section of the poem is written in alternately rhymed quatrains that describe a rural scene of potato digging that is clearly in progress much later than a...

  • Potato Famine - 502 Words
    During the summer of 1845, a "blight of unusual character" devastated Ireland's potato crop, the basic staple in the Irish diet. A few days after potatoes were dug from the ground, they began to turn into a slimy, decaying, blackish "mass of rottenness." Expert panels convened to investigate the blight's cause suggested that it was the result of "static electricity" or the smoke that billowed from railroad locomotives or the "mortiferous vapours" rising from underground volcanoes. In fact, the...

    Bangladesh is an agriculture dependent country. Lots of crops are cultivated in the firm land of Bangladesh. In last few decades, the demand of potato is increasing rapidly. As a developing country, the people of Bangladesh are not so affluent. That’s why they prefer potato to rice or wheat. The demand of potato is thus increasing as it is cheaper than the other two horticultural product rice and wheat. Last year, the production of potato is massive. But, that huge production makes a little...

    GCSE Biology: Osmosis in a Potato Aim To investigate the effect of placing a piece of potato in a given strength of sugar solution. Prediction I predict that, as the solution becomes more concentrated the more the cell will shrink, as the water, of higher concentration inside the potato cells, flows down a concentration gradient into the solution, which has a lower concentration of water molecules. If we say that the percentage change when the potato is placed in the 1M solution is x%. I...

    Osmosis in Potato Tubers Andrew Dickson Background When a plant cell is bathed in a solution of the same concentration (isotonic) as its intracellular environment, its mass and volume remain the same. This is because water enters and leaves the cells at the same rate. There is no net loss or gain of water by osmosis. Samples of cells can be placed in a range of solutions of different concentration. The cells will gain water by osmosis when placed in solutions which are more dilute...

  • Effect of Solute Concentration on Osmosis in Potato Cells Report
    INTRODUCTION Osmosis is the movement of water molecules from high concentration to low concentration through semipermeable membranes, caused by the difference in concentrations on the two sides of a membrane (Rbowen, L.). It occurs in both animals and plants cells. In human bodies, the process of osmosis is primarily found in the kidneys, in the glomerulus. In plants, osmosis is carried out everywhere within the cells of the plant (World Book, 1997). This can be shown by an experiment with...

    I have been asked to investigate the effects of osmosis on potato cell sap. I will test potato cylinders in different strengths of sucrose solution and record any results in a table. I will then analyse my findings and work out the isotonic point of the potato cell sap. Prediction I have looked at my scientific knowledge from the background theory I carried out and I will base my prediction upon this information. In this experiment, I expect the different concentrations to show fairly...

  • Complex technology of potato starch production line
    Potato starch production line can affect all process stages, from the delivery and unloading of the raw product, to the potato cleaning and rasping, to juice separation; then to starch extraction, starch milk refining and dewatering and up to starch drying. The pulp’s next stage is the washing starch station (usually steam-oriented), to isolate the starch and flush out the starch milk which is mixed with small potato fibre particles and juice leftovers. The longer the potatoes are stored, the...

  • The Main Production Process of Potato Starch Production Line
    Potatoes have been used as a source of raw material for high-quality starch for over 150 years. In addition to product quality, the consumption of fresh water and energy are now playing an ever more important role in potato starch production line. For this reason, Win Tone developed potato starch production line process lines which also convince users from these economic points of view. Our potato starch production line includes economic type and standardized type. Such as medium-sized and...

    Aim: To investigate the effect to the potato cells in the different solute concentration water Introduction; Water can move through the different cells due to the difference of water potentials in the cells. If there is a higher solute concentration in the cell than outside the cell, the water will move into the cell. However, if the concentration of inside the cell is lower than the outside, water will not move into the cell. This process is called osmosis. Research question; This...
