Project title Promotion of quality seed for POTATO
Project abstract Quality seed is more expensive than ordinary seed. While farmers in most communities demand access to quality seed, few farmers are actually willing to pay the premium associated with seed of better quality. It is therefore necessary to promote the merits of quality seed so as to create a farmer-based demand and market for quality seed.
