The Problem

The more than 13.5 million metric tons (MT) of sweetpotato produced in Sub-Saharan Africa annually feed millions of people. However, the full potential of sweetpotato has yet to be recognized as large yield gaps (ca. 20 MT/ha) exist across rain-fed SSA due to a wide range of biotic and abiotic constraints, and the lack of productive, resilient, consumer-preferred varieties.
