Published by cip-library
This catalogue is a presentation of currently popular or promising orange-fl eshed sweetpotato varieties (OFSP) for Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). The majority of these varieties have been released in at least one country, and are being used by farmers, while a few others are advanced promising lines. A good number of the varieties are important parents in regional and national breeding programs to improve levels of β-carotene and root dry matter in sweetpotato in the region. Some of the varieties are landraces from African countries while others are introduced germplasm from the USA, South America, and Asia, and have been found to be adapted to particular environments in SSA. There are also improved varieties from different African countries. The catalogue is arranged in single pages of information and pictorials for each of the varieties. Each page covers the morphological characteristics, root attributes, and other major attributes as well as the consumer and processing qualities of a single variety. Additional information about the current status of each variety is presented at the end of the document.
