This publication contains workshop proceedings on analytical trends in post-harvest handling, storage, and utilization of sweetpotato (SP). SP has considerable importance at farm level, as untapped potential for food, feed and industrial uses. Achieving this potential calls for better understanding of consumer needs including production pattern, current storage, processing and utilization practices. Therefore, the workshop objectives include reviews on existing practices in post-harvest handling, storage, marketing, processing, and sweetpotato utilization in south Asia, to document research results for future work planning, and make recommendations for improved technologies on storage, handling and sweetpotato utilization. Among featured south Asia countries are Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri-Lanka.
