A locally constructed harvesting aid and an imported digger-elevator were used for harvesting Sweet Potatoes. The harvesting aid was a l s o u s e d in yams and work so far indicates a saving in harvesting costs of up to $48.00 per acre. So far, the mechanical diggers have not damaged more tubers than hand digging methods. Further work is planned.
