Sweet potato (Solanum tuberosum), a staple tuber crop in parts of the Sudan and Guinea savanna zone of Nigeria is known for its resistance to drought, vigorous early growth and low input requirements. Increase in population which has resulted to land shortages has led to reduction in traditional methods of maintaining soil fertility. Technologies based on combinations of organic and inorganic sources of fertilizer would produce higher and more sustainable yields than either organic or inorganic…

Relative Performance of Three Sweet Potato Varieties in Sole and Intercrop Systems in Southern Guinea Savanna Ecology of Nigeria By Egbe
A field experiment was conducted in 2009 and 2010 at the Teaching and Research Farm of the University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria. The purpose of the experiment was to investigate
Enhancing growth and yield of crops with nutrient-enriched organic fertilizer at wet and dry seasons in ensuring climate-smart agriculture
PurposeRapid nutrient depletion in soils is one of the major problems that affect food production and food security in Sub-Saharan Africa. Studies have linked the growth of food crops with seasonal
Growth , Yield and Nutritional Quality of Sweet potato ( Ipomoea batatas ( L . ) Lam ) Varieties as Influenced by Fertilizer type and Rates
DOI: 10.15580/GJSSPN.2019.1.062119114 Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam) is one of the economically important and food securing root crop in Ethiopia. Fertilizer has greater effect on the yield
Sweet Potato Growth Parameters as Affected by Farmyard Manure and Phosphorus Application at Adami Tulu, Central Rift Valley of Ethiopia
Sweet potato is among the most important root crops produced in the central rift valley of Ethiopia. However, the yield obtained in the area is far below its genetic potential. The major cause of the

Seaweed is one of the most essential raw materials for the manufacture of bio-stimulant, which are processed and marketed for use in improving and maximizing agricultural production. Two field
This study was conducted as part of the ongoing programme at the Gladstone Road Agricultural Centre to select improved varieties of sweet potato for introduction into the cropping systems of local
Optimization of Yields and Yield Components of Sweet Potatoes (Ipomea batatas (L.) Lam) Using Organic Manure and Phosphate Fertilizer
Sweet potato production has been faced with various constraints including small land sizes and inappropriate agronomic practices, especially on management of soil fertility. Many studies that have
Agronomic and Physicochemical Evaluation of Sweet Potato [Ipomoeabatatas (L.) Lam.] Collections in Ethiopia
This study conducted during 2012/2013 cropping season to characterize, evaluate, and documenting of agronomic and physicochemical attributes of sweet potato accessions at Haramaya University recorded significantly higher values than mean of the checks.
Sweet potato response to low-input agriculture and varying environments of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa: implications for food security strategies
Three sweet potato cultivars (A40, A45 and 199062.1) were planted in three small-scale farms located under different agro-ecological zones of KwaZulu-Natal. The objective was to assess growth,
