Potato Production Course

To strengthen the potato seed production capacities of local and national technicians in the USAID Potato Program in Georgia, the International Potato Center (CIP) is organizing a virtual course on potato production covering the following topics: pest and disease management, seed production, and fertilizer and water management. Module 1 is full but modules 2 and 3 are taking applications now. We recommend this course for business-sector specialists and farm advisors linked to the potato value chain in Georgia.

All participants will receive official certificates of course completion.


DATE

June – July
