Tracking the access to popular and improved varieties of root crops by smallholder farmers

This project aims to disseminate market demanded sweet potatoes vines (popular and improved varieties) using rural primary school children as a dissemination channel. This initiative is spearheaded by the Department of Research and Development at the Ministry of Food and Cooperatives. ANSAF coordinates the policy and advocacy component, conducting dialogues with policy makers to promote the adoption of improved varieties of sweet potatoes to benefit the nutrition and livelihoods of smallholder’s farmers.
