A multi-sectoral approach is key for large scale dissemination and adoption of orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) and harnessing its nutritional potential. This requires creating demand for OFSP by communicating the nutritional and agronomic advantages, while at the same time providing training on the cultivation, storage and processing. This brief provides updates from HKI’s efforts to disseminate OFSP in Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Tanzania.
