Presentation: Sweetpotato research at the Natural Resources Institute (NRI)

NRI has worked on sweetpotato for several decades. Andrew Westby presented the ongoing work. The electronic sweetpotato is a device that resembles a sweetpotato and has a sensor that is supposed to look at where the damage occurs during marketing.  He also shared experiences of OFSP Marketing in Mozambique and Uganda; work to commercialize clean sweetpotato seed production in areas with a long dry season; a project investigating and promoting the role of mobile phones in vine selling; and research to develop sweetpotato varieties that are resistant to sweetpotato weevil.
