  1. I read about your sweet potato leaevs turning yellow. Maybe it’s just the vine getting old. I know my parents will clear the sweet potato patch after sometime and start all over again when disease set in. If the problem persists, you might want to cut them down (leave the main stems alone) and let them grow new shoots.
