An experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of using whole tubers versus minisetts to produce seed yams. Six treatments were combinations of whole tubers and minisetts and three tuber-size classes of 30 – 59 g, 60 - 89 g, and 90 – 120 g (referred to as 45 g, 75 g, and 105 g, respectively). The eExperiment was conducted as a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications.
