The International Society for Tropical Root Crops-Africa Branch(ISTRC-AB) was founded by few scientist who attended the ISTRC meeting far away in Thailand and could not see a large number of Africans because of high cost of attendance. The aim to include many more Africans in the discoures of root and tuber crops created the feeling for an African Branch of the society.The membership is open to all root and tuber crop people  whether they are researchers, business people, Government officials, heads of state,etc. In all the principal aim is to stimulate and enhance the value chain of research, production to full utilization of root and tuber crops(RTC) in Africa.
