Orange-ﬂeshed sweet potato (OFSP) can contribute to combating vitamin A deﬁciency and establishing more resilient cropping systems in sub-Saharan Africa. There is limited understanding of the factors that aﬀect yield and quality of OFSP on smallholder farmers’ ﬁelds. This study aimed to assess the performance of six OFSP varieties, identify factors limiting productivity and explore options to close the gap between actual and attainable OFSP yields on ﬁelds of smallholder farmers.
