Overview of sweet potato planting in Uganda
In terms of the harvested area and output of sweet potatoes, Uganda is the largest sweet potato producer in Africa. The country is the eighth largest producer of sweet potatoes in the world, producing approximately 1,656,981 tons of sweet potatoes in a harvested area of 391,974 hectares. The production of sweet potatoes in Uganda is mainly concentrated in densely populated areas (1000-2000 m).
The growth of sweet potatoes requires a temperature between 15 °C and 35 °C, relatively high light intensity, and an average annual rainfall of 750-1000 mm. Uganda is located in the equatorial region, with abundant rainfall and long hours of sunlight for most of the year, so plants can benefit from its hot and humid climate.
Sweet potato is the third most important crop in Uganda, second only to bananas and cassava grown at least twice a year in all regions of Uganda. The cultivation of sweet potatoes in Uganda accounts for about 55% of its tuber crop arable land.
Main applications of sweet potato peeling machine in Uganda
The sweet potato peeler machine and sweet potato washing machine sold by our factory in Uganda are often used in local food processing plants. Many customers in Uganda are engaged in the deep processing of sweet potato by-products, such as processed and baked sweet potato chips, crispy sweet potato fries, sweet potato flour, etc.
The commercial sweet potato peeling machine uses the slow rotation of the hard brush in the washing machine and the friction between the sweet potato and the sweet potato to quickly clean and peel the sweet potato. The upper part of the cleaning and peeling machine is equipped with a water outlet pipe for continuous water discharge.
Hard bristles with uneven heights are uniformly distributed on the bottom surface and the middle and lower sides of the machine, which can realize the continuous rolling of the sweet potato in the machine. The cleaning time for each batch of sweet potatoes is about 5-10 minutes (the specific cleaning time depends on the freshness of the sweet potatoes).
