Abstract

The objective of the project was to assess quality-value relationships for fresh sweetpotato and dried cassava marketed into the main urban centres. Based on these assessments, the project aimed to determine the causes of the losses and test interventions to improve quality and thus value of the commodity. Development of such improvements to the commodity systems offers the potential to enhance the livelihoods of poor farmers and traders.
