Sweetpotato varietal identification is key for understanding the real impact of the CIP interventions in different African countries where most of the investment to reduce poverty and malnutrition has taken place. International Potato Center conducted a study on farmer adoption and utilization of orange fleshed sweet potato and its effects on household welfare in Malawi. This study focused in a subsample from the household survey conducted at national level by CIP to estimate adoption and impact of OFSP varieties on health and economic outcomes. Therefore, the results will help to understand the extent of the misidentification of sweetpotato varieties in the different regions in Malawi.
