Okonkwo wants the boys to understand and become proficient at planting the yams, which is their most important crop. Okonkwo fears becoming a failure like his father, and the yam crop decides success. Okonkwo becomes a great man in the village because of this succes, and he wants to pass down that legacy to the boys.
