Greenhouse-grown 'Kennebec' and 'Atlantic' potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) plants were exposed twice-weekly for 5 hours to 380 μg.m-3 (0.2 ppm) NO2 throughout their growing season. NO2 accelerated the rate of leaf abscission and reduced tuber number, weight, and dry matter percentage. NO2 was absorbed by exposed plants, as reflected by an increase in leaf total N content, but did not affect the total glycoalkaloid (tga) status of potato foliage or tubers.
