Rapid assessment of sweetpotato seed and root production and markets in Kamuli and Iganga districts, near Eastern Uganda

The International Potato Center (CIP) and National Crops Resources Research Institute
(NaCRRI) under the supervision of National Agricultural Research Organization are
implementing a three-year project entitled, ‘Sweetpotato Genetic Advances and Innovative
Seed Systems (SweetGAINS)’ funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). The
project aims to modernize the current Sweetpotato breeding systems and early generation
seed production. SweetGAINS project is structured into work packages (WP1 – WP4) for
effective and efficient implementation. As part of work package 4, a detailed rapid
assessment of the sweetpotato seed system was conducted. The main objective of the study
was to generate bench information to support the implementation of the sweetpotato
system.
