Technical Abstract: Fifteen sweetpotato genotypes from the 2011 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 Covington, NC07-847, and NC05-198, which were not significantly different. NC05-198 had the highest percentage of jumbo roots, indicating earlier maturity for this entry. Covington had the highest percentage of the grade U.S. Number Ones at 73%.
