Julius Dorsese: Growing Sweetpotato Profits

 

“I began growing sweetpotato and made enough money to put a new roof on my house.

 

Orange-Fleshed Sweetpotato matures in ninety days. When it’s time to harvest, we are going to sell the vine and the root. It brings a big difference.

 

I received about 300 cuttings from the agriculture extension officer for multiplication. I multiplied these vines and got 2000 cuttings, which I transferred to another field and got about 14,000 vines. Through this work of vine multiplication and growing OFSP, my life has changed.”
