The Problem

Because of its broad agro-ecological adaptability, sweetpotato is grown in all of Nigeria’s 36 states.  Nonetheless, Nigeria still has high levels of poverty and food insecurity.  Nutrient deficiency remains a matter of public health concern as over 41% of children below five years of age are stunted and the prevalence of vitamin A deficiency is 29.5%.
