The USAID Potato Program in Georgia | Green Stop Tour

Producing clean seed is a perennial challenge to potato production in Georgia and around the world. Because it is bulky and perishable (and costly), most potato farmers use old seed potatoes from previous harvests, but these potatoes carry disease and result in sub-optimal yields. Current seed sharing practices are informal and a lack of certification standards means that Georgian potato farmers miss out on better yields and higher incomes from potato. 

The Green Stop Tour will visit five places in Georgia where the USAID Potato Program is working to improve the country’s potato sector through enhanced seed production, led by the International Potato Center and its 3G Seed Potato Production approach.
