KALRO focuses on high-quality potato seed to boost production

The Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization-KALRO is focusing on a high quality potato seed production and distribution deal with the Syngenta Foundation, hoping to increase production five-fold, to 10 million tons a year.

The deal involves increasing high quality certified potato seed availability to farmers by 25 percent through rapid multiplication, increased field seed bulking and capacity building of commercial seed growers. In the video below, Benson Rioba talks about the key target; increasing local potato sales at high end chain restaurants in Kenya.
