Presentation 09: Development of End-user Preferred Sweetpotato Varieties in Ghana

This presentation sought to ascertain stakeholders’ knowledge, perceptions, and preferences on sweetpotato end-user-traits in Ghana, assess genetic variation of sweetpotato genotypes in Ghana using agro-morphological, physico-chemical and SSR markers, assess self- and cross-compatibility in sweetpotato germplasm while determining the gene action involved in the control of beta- carotene, dry matter and sugar contents of storage roots and determining the level of heterosis for beta-carotene, dry matter and sugar contents of sweetpotato storage roots.
