No.  I do rotate potatoes, peppers, and eggplants.  Try to move sweet corn
around as well.  Sweet potatoes don't need to be rotated, though.  Do you
bake your sweet potatoes?  A sweet potato 2 or 3 inches in diameter can be
microwaved for about 5 minutes, turned 90 degrees and turned over then
nuked another 5 minutes, then put in foil to rest, and tastes as good as
oven-baked.  I cut in rounds and top with margarine or Brown & Brummel
stuff.  Yummm.  Margaret
