Abstract

The objectives of this study were to assess and describe some selected characteristics of the sweet potato farmers, to determine the extent of performance of farmers on sweet potato cultivation; to explore the relationship between the selected characteristics of the farmers with performance of different sweet potato varieties and to compare severity of the problem of the performance of different sweet potato varieties. The survey was conducted on 102 randomly selected farmers in four upazilas of bangladas in four districts. We collected data from respondents from January 20, 2019 to February 20, 2019, using a pre-tested interview schedule. The performance of various sweet potato cultivars was the dependent variable, which was measured by variables measured based on tonnes of yield per hectare. Farmers’ achievements in sweet potato cultivation were measured by performance. We selected 11 characteristics of the performance of various sweet potato varieties and the respondents’ relationships to the independent variables of the survey. The majority of sweet potato varieties (61.8%) had moderate performance and 20.6% had poor performance. Five characteristics of the respondents, namely. Knowledge of education, training, tolerance, exposure to expansion, and cultivation of sweet potatoes was significantly positively associated with the performance of various sweet potato cultivars. However, age, family size, sweet potato acreage, BCR, commercialization, and sweet potato cultivation issues were not significantly associated with the performance of various sweet potato cultivars.
