Technical Abstract: Nine sweeetpotato genotypes from the 2013 National Sweetpotato Collaborator Trials were evaluated for yields of marketable roots in replicated field trials at Charleston, SC. Overall, the highest total marketable yields were for genotypes Beauregard (B94-14), Covington, Orleans (L05-111), and L07-146, which were not significantly different. These same four genotypes had the highest percentage of jumbo roots, indicating earlier maturity for these entries. L04-175, L07-146, and NC07-364 had the highest percentages of the grade U.S. Number Ones at 71-75%.
