SPHI Brief 09: Jumpstarting OFSP in West Africa

We used various markets as entry points for developing value chains for orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) at pilot sites in Ghana, Nigeria and Burkina Faso. By the end of the project, farmers in each area were profitably growing increasing amounts of OFSP for market and home consumption, and viable seed businesses linked to national breeding programs were serving these farmers and other customers including private producers, NGOs and government extension programs.
