Poster: Triple S method: assuring availability of sweetpotato planting material in Northern Uganda

The lack of sweetpotato planting material at the on set of rains greatly compromises early plantings potential food security strategy. This poster presents a study on ‘Triple S’ method in assuring availability of sweetpotato planting material in Northern Uganda. The “3S” seed system approach is simple to use, saves labor and requires limited resources which are locally available. Farmers are easily able to adopt it to produce timely sweetpotato planting material for early planting. Promotion of this method contributes to enhanced food security especially in pro-longed dry areas. The simplicity of the method and enthusiasm by both farmers and researchers has generated ideas for further research and improvement.
