08 Aug Demystify Technology
Peter spoke at the African Potato Association Meeting, held in Naivasha, Kenya, July 1, 2013. He discussed how Asian farmers in China, Vietnam and the Philippines had demystified technology around tissue culture and varietal selection to become very successful seed potato producers. He challenged the African scientists to consider moving seed production and varietal selection from research stations and government controlled facilities to the farmers doing it themselves.
