Sweet potato slip production in Canadian greenhouses

Thumbnail Sweet Potato Slip Prodcution ReportTo meet the increasing demand for sweet potatoes in Canada, Vineland has published best production practices to support the creation of a national slip propagation industry.

Establishing a Canadian slip propagation industry will allow growers to have access to slips when they need them and eliminate expensive transportation costs. Addressing this critical step of the sweet potato value chain will remove a major bottleneck in the expansion of Canadian production. Growers will have access to locally-sourced, high quality sweet potato slips at the right time and also support Canada’s prior investment in the creation of new sweet potato varieties adapted to Canadian climates.
