Potatofied innovations: Developing entrepreneurial skills among farmers in Assam
There is, perhaps, no vegetable in the world as versatile as the potato. And farmers in Assam, India, are proving this fact by developing numerous innovations to bring new products into local markets.
The innovations have been created through Value Chain Schools (VCS) within the Assam Agri-Business and Rural Transformation Project (APART) – a project dedicated to fostering entrepreneurial skills among small and marginalized farmers in Assam. The International Potato Center (CIP) is providing consultancy services to facilitate activities for developing a potato value chain in Assam.
