Orange sweet potato roots and leaves are rich in vitamins and energy. They are valuable source of micronutrients particularly vitamins A, B and C. Combining orange sweet potato with other foods such as nutrient-rich small fish increases dietary diversity and improves the nutritional value of family meals. This leaflet outlines the methods used in growing orange sweet potato in Bangladesh, where 56% of the population do not meet their vitamin A requirements through their diet.
Carp and small fish (e.g. mola) production can be practiced in household ponds. This production technology increases overall fish production and income, and contributes to improved family nutrition. This leaflet outlines the basic methods used in growing and stocking carp-mola in a pond setting.
