In Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), conventionally, sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam) pre-basic seed is multiplied in screenhouses using sterilized soil substrate. This makes pre-basic seed to be expensive for basic seed multipliers and thereby a challenge in delivering economically viable option for further multiplication for root producers to access low cost quality planting materials. Sandponics is postulated to be an alternative to the conventional sweetpotato pre-basic seed multiplication, but it’s cost-effectiveness is unknown compared with the...
