Innala is the most profitable tuber crop that is grown in Sri Lanka. It is grown basically for the local market and where cultivation is done in large extents marketing is not a problem. A net profit of over Rs 100,000 / acre is earned by certain farmers in the traditional areas. It also has a nutritive value that is similar to potato and is considered a 'safe' vegetable as it is grown basically without any pesticides.
