SASHA Brief 10: Cost-effectiveness of Different Irrigation Approaches for Producing Sweetpotato Vines in Net Tunnels Compared to Open Nurseries

This study was conducted under researcher-management to compare different irrigation approaches for producing sweetpotato planting material in low-cost net tunnels and open nurseries. Preliminary results show that producing vines using net tunnels with access to irrigation (drip and furrow) is more cost-effective than producing vines in open field nurseries with access to irrigation.
