It has been the goal in this volume to summarize the current level of understanding in a number of areas relating to sweet potato production and utilization. To accomplish this, a group of authors, each with broad experience in the selected areas, was assembled. It is hoped that this volume will be useful as a beginning point- a foundation for further research efforts.
