4 G ENERAL OVERVIEW Producers have a fairly long history of growing SP as a cash crop – medium: 15 years Production increasing each year due to market demand Due to perishability, mainly a cash crop, since 15 years ago Two major market accepted varieties, and OFSP introduced, and accepted in market in recent years Two major production and collection areas, one borders Mali and one borders Ghana Main consumption areas NOT in cities, but other provinces, as staple food, not snack Mainly just one season, except a few pockets of irrigated dry season crop Monocropping, no intercropping

11 C OSTS SUMMARY FertilizerFertilizer, seed, and transport make up 70% of total costs, how can these activities be made more efficient?seedtransport Ridging and harvesting require most labor (or cash) input Much of the labor is covered by family and community exchange Often a youth crop due to the heavy labor requirement for ridging and harvesting

27 CONSUMERS 80% consumed in the provinces as staple Mainly boiled as staple, smaller percentage fried Frying characteristics not a concern, low DM of OFSP not a concern Consumers prefer the color of OFSP and willing to higher prices for them Implications: OFSP is the accepted in market in Burkina without needing any media campaign OFSP produced in Navrongo and Bawku can be marketed in Leo and Po

28 M AIN OBJECTIVES OF PROPOSED INTERVENTIONS Overcome current constraints to profits To increase income with improved varieties High--yielding Early maturing or long season for higher prices To increase income by storing roots for 1-2 months To decrease costs Fertilizer Seed Transport Ridging & harvest Capitalize on opportunities by diversifying products To diversify income sources To improve health and diet

29 As cash cropAs nutrition cropAs livestock feed Breeding 1.Breeding for market- accepted high-yielding, early maturing, long- season, weevil- resistance 2.Regional germplasm evaluation High yielding OFSP Selection for dual- purpose—total biomass from root and vines, if such interest exists. Seed system 1.Multiply and sell seed of improved varieties for market via existing seed supplier. 2.Ways to assist more farmers to maintain seed during dry season Multiply and sell OFSP varieties via existing seed supplier. Multiply and sell seed of dual- purpose varieties for market via existing seed supplier. Suggested products and interventions

30 As cash cropAs nutrition cropAs livestock feed Production improvement 1.Fertilizer trials to determine the optimal fertilizer application for the introduced varieties. 2.Ways to decreased ridging labor (establish tractor rental enterprise?) 3.Experiment on overall best ICM practices. 1.Fertilizer trials to determine the suitable fertilizer investment for food security crop (no cash income) 2.Same 3.Same 1.Fertilizer trials to determine the most appropriate practices to obtain the highest volume of vine & root biomass and livestock nutrition 2.Same 3.Same

31 As cash cropAs nutrition cropAs livestock feed Posthar vest 1.Harvest method to minimize damage and improve quality 2.Assessing postharvest loss to transport and ways to minimize loss 3.Experiment fresh root storage methods for 1-2 months 1.Introduce cooking and eating practices appropriate within local food consumption practice to enhance nutrition 1.Experiment with various vine silage treatments (also with roots, should interest exists, for the times when fresh roots prices are too low to sell. 2.Feeding trials with silage 3.Experiment with holistic system of crop feed and soil maintenance with intensified animal manure application

32 As cash cropAs nutrition cropAs livestock feed Marketing1.Linking producers with collectors for direct collection 2.Establish local collection center 1.Awareness campaign to introduce the benefits of OFSP
