    Dear Marketing, Processing and Utilization Community of Practice,

    During our meeting last year the discussion topic: ‘The pre- and post-harvest handling of sweet potato under tropical conditions for quality roots’ was identified to run during these months of January and February. Feel free to weigh in on the topic by sharing your thoughts, knowledge and experience guided by the following two questions:

    1. What are the pre-harvesting and post-harvesting practices that are successfully done by sweet potato farmers in your country and what are the reasons behind those practices? What is the effect of these practices on the quality of the storage roots?
    2. What factors will influence the adoption of new pre- and post-harvest handling technologies by farmers?

    We are looking forward to your ideas and contributions.


    On behalf of Group D,

    Daniel van Vugt (CIP Malawi)
