Sweet potato provides sweet inspiration for 9th grade students in Tajikistan. As beautiful as these drawings are to look at we feel that the farmers who plant these and the scientists who helped breed disease resistant and stress tolerant varieties are also quite the artists. Generous funding from USAID – US Agency for International Development
Local community participation has been broadened through involvement of local government that improves dissemination of introduced technologies and varieties. On the basis of the advice of Deputy. Governor of Khatlon Province, Mr. Hakimozoda, sweetpotato will be distributed in other districts of Khatlon as well.
