This section gives descriptions of methods by which the Tanzania breeding programme obtained necessary information to decide main selection criteria for new cultivars and also reports on main study findings. As a conclusion, limited information exists in Tanzania on the preferences of consumers and traders. However, the methods described here could be useful to other national programs.
