SASHA Brief 08: Assessing irrigation approaches for production of sweetpotato planting material in net tunnels and open fields

This study explored the importance of four factors in irrigated vine production. These were production in net tunnels and open plots, varietal differences, different water delivery systems and water stress levels. All the experimental plots performed better than the control (farmer practice) with both varieties attaining higher yields under net tunnel compared to open field management.
