Poster: SUSTAIN Kenya Baseline Survey: Preliminary Findings and Implications for Effective Implementation

A baseline survey was carried out in Western Kenya to determine scaling up Sweetpotato through Agriculture and Nutrition (SUSTAIN) performance in promoting adoption of orange fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP). Some major points outlined in this poster include: unfamiliarity with OFSP and its benefits in the region calls for strong and extensive promotion of the benefits of OFSP; strong preference for taste, sweetness and dry matter content need continued breeding for these traits; focus on the use of radio and TV as information channels will need to be evaluated based on context.
