Gender responsive participatory varietal selection for sustainable seed potato systems in Assam, India.

This report presents the results of the Participatory Varietal Selection (PVSs) implemented in 2018. A total of 116 people participated in the PVSs at the flowering stage and 139 people participated at the harvesting stages. Gender‐responsive approaches were employed to facilitate women’s active participation. More than 50% of participants were women, and gender segregated group discussions were held to create a comfortable environment for women to speak in public.
