Even if grown on small areas only, these crops can be important for improving the diets of children or ill persons; for example, the health status of people affected by chronic diseases or HIV/Aids can be inﬂuenced positively through diverse, nutrientrich diets based on the aforementioned crops (Gari 2004). Germplasm collections of various NUS, including beans, cassava and sweet potato, show considerable variability in key micronutrient contents (Tumwegamire 2011), pointing to their untapped potentials for increasing nutritional value from NUS through targeted breeding and selection.
Developing fewer tillers in stress conditions and more under favorable conditions; (2) population buffering, which means diversity exists within a variety for key traits, such as ﬂowering dates, resulting in only a portion of plants being susceptible to stress at a given time or place, and all remaining plants able to escape the adverse conditions; and (3) adaptive traits, directly conferring tolerance or resistance to stresses arising due to climatic variation, such as ﬂooding, drought, or pests and diseases.
