The global meeting place for people interested in all things related to SWEETPOTATO

Share your research and experience, ask and answer questions, meet your peers.

Decentralized breeding in Africa for Africa clearly has produced results. By using new methods and tools, and engaging with farmers earlier in the breeding cycle, Speedbreeders had released 46 new sweetpotato varieties since 2009, 37 of which are orange-fleshed by 2015.  Thirteen breeders contributed to the 2014 edition of the Catalogue of Orange-fleshed Sweetpotato for Africa. Capacity building efforts are helping to build the next generation of breeders. Evidence has been generated proving that hybrid vigor can be exploited in sweetpotato; now, even faster breeding progress can be expected.  By December 2013, 890,000 SSA households had received orange-fleshed varieties.

The annual SpeedBreeders meetings bring national program breeders from 14 countries together has continued.  From 2015, the meeting will be collaboration with the new sweetpotato genomics project led by North Carolina State University.  This collaboration will introduce training on and use of molecular tools into the breeding CoP. 

Speedbreeders from 14 SSA countries meet annually to review their progress and learn new techniques.  To further improve their efficiency, they are using SASHA’s Excel-based tool CloneSelector, with the R Statistical Package integrated into it.  It facilitates trial design, label printing, entering data into agreed upon common fields, and data analysis.
