Technical Report - Assam Agribusiness and Rural Transformation Project
BRIJESH KUMAR. (1/2/2021). Technical Report - Assam Agribusiness and Rural Transformation Project.
Overall data shows a poor performance of potato value chain in Assam. It was found awareness about potato seed among farmers in Assam is very low, the agronomic practices are with many flaws, post-harvest losses are quite huge, involvement of women in the value chain is quite poor. Moreover, potato market is quite unorganized in the state. Access to cold storage is almost nil for the farmers. Training and capacity building among farmers about potato is lacking. However, activity of extension machinery is encouraging from the survey. The details of these findings are discussed in the report.
