Papua New Guinea:

New tissue culture laboratory in Kainantu to boost potato production

Potato production in Papua New Guinea is about to take a leap forward with the completion of a new tissue culture laboratory for the Fresh Produce Development Agency (FPDA) set to boost production in the country.

The laboratory in Kainantu, Eastern Highlands Province, will produce clean, disease-free seed potato and sweet potato planting materials to distribute to the surrounding communities, doubling the number of seeds available and improving productivity right across the country. The project is funded by the Australian Government's Incentive Fund program and is complemented by a new training center.
