Excessive amounts of moisture during tuber initiation and spud swell is probably the single biggest factor.  The tubers are essentially outgrowing themselves.

I noticed something new while cutting seed pieces this year. On the certified seed tag of the yukons were the words hollow heart exempt. Several of the larger potatoes had hollow heart. I believe Hollow heart,while more prevalent in some varieties  Is caused by excess nitrogen. I was wondering if any of you had noticed similar labels
