Growing yams/sweet potatoes?
Can I grow yams and sweet potatoes in Oregon?
Hood River County Oregon
Thank you for your question. Yams and sweet potatoes are entirely different plant species, and only sweet potatoes are grown here. The following Extension article lays out the requirements for successful sweet potato crops; if your conditions are such as indicated, it’s worth a try: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/news/osu-master-gardener-goes-sweet-potatoes Good luck!
