Abstract: This study was carried out to evaluate best germplasm of sweet potato for physiochemical characters. For this, research work was carried out in sixteen diversified sweet potato germplasm under randomized block design with three replications at Department of Horticulture, Rajasthan College of Agriculture, Udaipur. All parameters were observed at the end of harvest of crop. Results revealed that sweet potato vines are rich in nutritive value as protien content in vines ranges from 3.02 % to 7.38% while magnesium ranges 443.73 ppm to 471.84 ppm and this crop can be utilized as an alternative feed resource for ruminants to reduce competition between animals and humans.
