For about 30 years, the Univ. of California has used advanced laboratory techniques in addition to traditional methods to produce pathogen-free and true-to-type sweetpotato seedstock. The effort continues with the varieties important in the marketplace today. This program serves as a model for the use of meristem culture by foundation sweetpotato programs in other states.
