Technical Abstract: Twelve sweetpotato genotypes from the 2009 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 L05-111, Hatteras, Evangeline, and Beauregard. Although yield of Charleston Scarlet was lower than most other genotypes, this variety had the highest percentage of US#1 at 84%. L05-111 and Beauregard had the highest percentage of jumbo roots, indicating earlier maturity for these entries.
