This report provides summary and detail of the project aimed to establish ongoing export trade of the Asian root crops taro, yam, yam bean and/or sweet potato to Japan and/or USA. The project proceeded in two stages. The first stage involved market assessment through information available in literature and databases, and followed up by information from two visits by project participants to Japan and USA. This has been published and available on the RIRDC website under the title of 03/052 Selected markets for taro, sweet potato and yam (Vinning, 2003). Stage two of the project primarily involved production, quality and marketing trials of a sato-imo cultivar already available in Australia. This report details the activities and achievements of Stage 2.
