Understanding the nature and magnitude of variability existing among sweetpotato genetic materials for important traits is vital for the effective utilization of such materials for breeding purposes. Eighteen landraces from diverse origins, plus three released cultivars as checks, were evaluated in two contrasting locations, using nine agronomic and eight morphological traits of the crop, to estimate the nature and magnitude of the variability among the genetic materials, to determine the…
