Mechanised farming and improved vairety seeds has helped a family potato business in Kenya go from a harvest of 150 acres in 2021, to more than 500 acres under production in 2022. At the time, the quest to empower farmers and improve access to certified seeds had begun through testing propagation of apical root cuttings with the International Potato Center (CIP). It was at this point that Christopher’s vision of developing a model for de-centralized potato seed production was born.
