Production systems for sweet potatoes in the Dominican Republic. A comparison of two agroecological zones

The importance of agricultural production in the Dominican economy has declined over recent years, while the population has increased rapidly and has become more urbanized. In this context, the study identifies sweet potato production as an area which could be further developed to meet the growing food and nutritional needs of the population.
