Prof. Simon Irtwang, Chairman, Technical Committee on Yam Export, on Tuesday said yam exporters were finalising processes to export another consignment of yam to the United States of America and United Kingdom.
Irtwang told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the consignment will be exported in the first quarter of 2018.
According to him, the committee has been touring major yam markets, especially in the South-West, to inspect the quality of yams there.
“Not all species of yam are good for export. So, yam farmers and traders need to know the species that are good for export.
