This video explains how one can store sweetpotato roots for up to 4 months by harvesting, selecting and storing roots in sand. Orange-fleshed potato is a very nutritious and healthy food, because it is rich in pro-vitamin A and other important nutrients. While it is very healthy and nutritious, it is also difficult to store. If you don’t watch out, you can lose your sweetpotatoes to weevils and rot in storage, before you get the chance to eat or sell it. Farmers in Golinga community are meeting at a demonstration plot that shows good agricultural practices for a high yield and good quality roots. They are going to learn how to harvest, select and store roots in sand for up to 4 months.
