This research looked to evaluate further two technologies initiated under DFID CPP R6629. Namely, the bicontrol agent [BCA] against bacterial wilt and the on-farm small-scale seedtuber production systems [SSPS]. In these earlier studies, it was initially envisaged that the SSPS would provide the window for the application of the BCA. However, initial SSPS trial data suggested that the SSPS had significant value in its own right in improving the dynamics of seed flow.
