Fifteen Xanthosoma varieties were tested for yield in three different experiments conducted at the Gurabo Substation in 1961-62 and at Naranjito and Corozal in 1963-64. Significant differences at the 5-percent level were observed only between very high yielding and very low yielding varieties in the Gurabo and the Naranjito experiments. Although results were inconclusive, the varieties Rascana, Viequera, Blanca and Drearies may be considered among the highest producers because of their consistently good performance.
