Table 3 Accession mean estimates for number of storage roots, yield of storage roots (SFRY) and vines (VNY), total biomass, harvest index (HI) and dry matter content of storage roots (DMC) form a series of experiments over three locations and two seasons with yam bean under Rwandan growing conditions

From: Evaluation of Performance of Introduced Yam Bean (Pachyrhizus spp.) in Three Agro-Ecological Zones of Rwanda
