Abstract:
The growth and yield potential of nine selected genotypes of sweet potato was studied. Length and weight of vines per plant, number of main stems per plant, number and weight of tubers per plant and weight, length, diameter and dry matter content of tuber varied significantly among the genotypes. The genotypes SP3 gave the highest yield 47.59 t ha–1 followed by SP4 (42.82 t ha–1), SP16 (36.15 t ha–1) and SP1 (35.89 t ha–1). Tuber yield had significant and positive correlation with length and weight of vines per plant, number and weight of tubers per plant, average weight of tuber and diameter of tuber. Considering the associations into direct and indirect effects, weight of tubers per plant followed by average weight of tuber and number of tubers per plant found to contribute to the higher yield.
