KEPHIS and World Vision Sign MOU to Promote Orange Fleshed Sweetpotato

Nairobi - World Vision through the ENRICH Project is promoting the production, utilization and consumption of nutrient dense food crops such as the Orange Fleshed Sweetpotato and iron rich beans.

The KEPHIS-Plant Quarantine and Bioseucurity Station (PQBS) has supplied over 60,000 orange-fleshed sweetpotato vines to support the project in Bomet and Elgeyo Marakwet Counties.

World Vision is working with KEPHIS on Orange fleshed Sweetpotato clean materials and other services such as phytosanitary inspections, seed certification, plant variety protection, diagnostics and analytical services as well as awareness on pest management strategies to promote food security.

KEPHIS PQBS is producing clean sweetpotato farmer preferred varieties. These materials are produced through tissue culture techniques and virus indexing. The tissue culture plantlets are then multiplied in the facility’s screen house to produce cuttings for sale.

Currently, two sweetpotato orange fleshed varieties - vitaa and kabode - are in production. These varieties are early maturing, rich in β-carotene content and high yielding.

For sustainable production of sweetpotato planting material, the proceeds from these sales are channeled back to meet recurrent production
