A large field potato experimental data set has been assembled for simulation modeling. The data are from temperate, subtropical, and tropical regions across the world and include 87 experiments with 204 treatments. Treatments include nitrogen fertilizer, irrigation, atmospheric CO2 levels, temperature, cultivars, and locations. For all experiments, measurements include tuber fresh and dry weight. For some experiments, measurements include in-season biomass, leaf area index, stem and leaf weight, N uptake, soil water, and soil N contents. Each experiment has soil characteristics and daily data for solar radiation, rainfall, and maximum and minimum temperature. The data have been quality checked and used in a previous simulation exercise. All data are in AGMIP format. Data access via doi 10.7910/DVN/4KJ5ME.
