Sweet potato flour is much more difficult to make than potato flour because the reducing sugars readily released from the starch combine with free amino acids to produce disagreeable colors, odors, and flavors.

To avoid this the peeled sweet potato can be shredded, and the shreds immersed in water 2. Crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of different types of crops in the same area across a sequenced of growing reduces reliance on one set of nutrients, pest and weed pressure, and the probability of developing resistant pest and weeds.
