Reducing Damage to Sweet Potatoes on the Sweet Potato Packing Line

Description:
The market demand for uniform appearance of sweet potatoes often brings about the use of long and complicated packing lines to allow for grading and sizing of the roots. This unfortunately results in many opportunities for mechanical damage to the roots, including skinning, cuts, bruises and breaking of ends that detract from the appearance of the roots and increase the possibility of disease development. Use these recommendations to reduce damage on packing lines. (PDF format only)
