Improving the yield of sweet potato crops in East Africa


Uganda is one of the leading producers of Sweet potato in Africa. But research into this staple crop has been neglected with farmers recycling diseased and poor yielding varieties. Bionnovate has been working to improve the yield of sweet potato crops in East Africa.

Dr. Settumba Mukasa is the Bioinnovate project scientist at Makerere University and also a Principal Investigator on the RUFORUM Community Action Research Project (CARP) focusing on Developing a community-based cassava seed system for increased productivity and market linkages in Uganda.
