For any crop cultivar to be successful it must not only have good production characteristics but also characteristics that ensure the harvested crop is acceptable and suitable for its intended use. Sweetpotato Post-harvest Assessment summarizes work carried out on postharvest aspects of sweetpotato between 1994 and 2002 within collaborative projects involving the Natural Resources Institute (UK), the International Potato Center and the Tanzanian Ministry of Agriculture, with input from the Kenyan Agricultural Research Institute and the National Agricultural Research Organization of Uganda. Methods are discussed for assessing different quality aspects of sweetpotato cultivars within breeding programmes. The book is expected to be of particular interest to sweetpotato breeding organizations and those involved in research on sweetpotato, but will also be useful to those working on other crops.
