Promoting orange-fleshed sweet potato in Northwest Ghana




Kate Fuller, University of California, Davis


The goal of this project is to develop a cost‐effective and sustainable system for
continuous multiplication and timely distribution of quality orange‐fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) planting material. The project also has a postharvest component that aims to develop small‐scale value addition and commercialization systems for OFSP in the Northwest regions of Ghana. GhIH is training growers in improved agricultural practices and teaching members about the nutritional value of OFSP. Kate Fuller is helping GhIH conduct value‐chain analyses of OFSP and working to improve the profitability of OFSP farming and the availability of OFSP products in the market.
