During the dry season in the tropics, sweetpotato storage roots naturally remain dormant in the dry soil, and sprout when the rains come. This natural tendency of sweetpotato to remain dormant in dry soil has been exploited to produce planting material through the so-called “Triple-S” method: storage in sand and sprouting. From 2013 to 2015, we conducted a set of trials at the community level in Malawi and northern Ghana to develop methods of sweetpotato storage for home fresh consumption. Our most successful methods involved storage in sand in dried mud (adobe) boxes constructed in thatched huts, and storage in stepped pits to covered with a thatched roof. In Malawi, OFSP fresh storage roots could be stored for up to 6.5 months in stepped pit stores. In Ghana, storage was possible for up to 4.5 months in sand boxes.
