Diallel Analysis of Sweet Potato [Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam] Genotypes for Combined Beta Carotene and Dry Matter Content in Southern Guinea Savanna, Nigeria
Roots of orange - fleshed sweet potato varieties currently available in Nigeria contain high quantities of β - carotene or pro - vitamin A but have high moisture content. These varietiesExpand
Effects of staking on flower induction, pollination and cross-compatibility among sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.).
Glass houses have been used to induce flowering in sweet potatoes for purposes of breeding. However, these structures are expensive to construct and/or maintain. Thus this study investigated effectsExpand
