Tomulabula: The first ever sweet potato variety bred by participatory plant breeding in Uganda

Tomulabula: The first ever sweet potato variety bred by participatory plant breeding in Uganda
Richard Gibson, Natural Resources Institute (2011)

Summary

This film is about the release of a sweetpotato variety in Uganda that has been called Tomulabula by farmers and NASPOT 11 PPB 1 by scientists. It is the first release of a variety that has been bred by participatory plant breeding (PPB) in Uganda. PPB is an approach that brings together farmers and scientists working closely together and often in farmers’ fields in order to develop a variety that is particularly suited to farmers. The approach is particularly good for developing countries like Uganda and also for staple food crops such as sweet potato.
