Summary:
A mixture of original research, updates on procedures, literature reviews, and survey reports, this document resulted from the second symposium of the International Society for Tropical Root Crops - Africa Branch, with 77 participants from 16 countries. The focus was casava, yams, cocoyams, and sweet potatoes, from the perspectives of breeders, agronomists, soil specialists, plant pathologists, entomologists, nutritionists, food technologists, etc. Learning from past successes and failures, many of the researchers directed their efforts toward problems obstructing progress in reaching improved production and use of root crops and attempted to view, realistically, the context in which their results would be applied.
