  • Developing farmer based potato system in non- traditional seed producing areas to benefit farmers of Plateau Region (South) of India” Mohinder Singh Kadian CIP-SWCA
  • Project sites
  • Background: • In the proposed pro-poor project, 95% of the beneficiaries will be marginal and small farmers with significant percent of women associated with agriculture in Karnataka and Maharashtra with land holdings less than 1 ha • At present nearly 45,000 ha area is under potato and productivity is less than 14 t/ha • The production of quality seed locally can bring about 75,000 ha under potato and increase potato productivity by 20% by 2020.
  • Project Goal: The pro-poor project seeks to benefit marginal and small of plateau region sustainable production of quality seed locally. Specific objectives: • Baseline survey undertaken to study exiting seed system, marketing chain and participation of woman farmers at farms and at home • Low aphid population and bacterial free sites for quality potato seed production identified through survey.
  • • Degeneration study undertaken for policy makers to implement at state level • The income of poor farmers increased more than 40% by reduced cost of seed and increased productivity • Potato introduced in non-traditional potato growing areas • Capacity building of extension workers, researchers and farmers on improved technologies for seed production
  • Project Outputs • Existing potato seed system and marketing chain documented • Areas with low aphid population (below thresh-hold level) and bacterial free identified by 2016 • Sustainability of health standard of seed under different environments studied and documented. • 30-40% seed requirement of about 10,000 farming families met locally produced quality seed by 2017 and non-traditional areas brought under potato cultivation.
