Yam minisett technique (YMT)

Topic:

Seeds

Definition:

“The YMT uses “mother” yams of 500–1000 g to generate minisetts by careful cutting. The minisett size can vary from 10 to 80 g, but the recommended weight promoted in Nigeria since the early 1980s has been 25 g (Kalu et al.1989). One 500 to 1000 g mother yam should yield about 20–40 minisetts of 25 g.”
