Abstract

Three polycrosses of D. cavenensis-rotundata introduced from IITA (Nigeria) have been selected in Guadeloupe over six years, with the contribution of trials in Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Grenada. Several clones appear more adapted to an industrial cultivation than local controls. The selection process and the main characters involved are described. Prospects for the use of this material and the following steps in this first breeding of the African yam in the Caribbean are discussed.
