  • Yams - excessive top growth

    my yams hav single stem foliage 15-20cm high. Not the usual lower branched foliage. Can I or do I need to cut it back to send the energy to making tubers

    I'm wondering if your soil is too rich or you've added too much fertilizer? This will create lots of foliage but not too many tubers. Yes, I would cut the stalk at about halfway up to make the plant send side shoots. By the way - the cut off bits will grow too if you want more plants.
