During the past few years, there has been an increasing volume of complaint from the producers of sweet potatoes over the low prices received and the general unsatisfactory state of the industry. This unhealthful condition has been reflected in diminished activity among Tennessee's cooperative sweet potato marketing associations; and, taken with the general lack of system in the whole process of conveying this commodity from producer to consumer, and with the conspicuous lack of data on this process, the marketing of sweet potatoes now offers a fertile field for productive research.
