Abstract

This report outlines the relationship between quality and economic value for fresh sweet potato and dried cassava in the urban markets of Mwanza in north west Tanzania. These two crops form an increasingly important part of food security and, through the marketing of surpluses, of income generation for poor householders. The work reported in this report used a combination of participatory and more formal statistical methodologies in order to gauge relationships between quality and value of the marketed produce.
