How to maximise cultivation of Orange-fleshed Sweetpotato

Despite its health, economic and nutritional benefits, Orange-Fleshed Sweet Potato (OFSP) is yet to be widely cultivated in farms.

OFSP is a new variety of potato rich in Vitamin A, a critical vitamin that is deficient in most diets in sub-Saharan Africa and remains a serious public health issue in Nigeria.

Aside its nutritional advantages, it improves eye sight and is good for diabetics. It is economical; its leaves can be used for producing drinks, and can also be used in bread production, to lessen reliance on wheat.
