Fires are lit once or twice weekly to fumigate the roots which are often covered with ashes having antifungal properties. Losses of up to 95% were observed in this method (Olorunda, 1979). In the Philippines, sweet potato stored in a trench 50 cm deep, covered with sand and sheltered by a roof resulted in 35% decay and 45% sprouting after 50 days (Mariscal, 1997). The storage of sweet potato roots in Indonesia after six months entailed more than 50% loss (Yakub, 1997). 32 Ramesh C. Ray, V. Ravi, Vinayak Hegde et al.
