This project compared the benefits of a Partial Seed Scheme with other approaches, including the use of Indonesian government certified seed, private seed production and aeroponics-based production.

Potatoes are a priority crop targeted for development by the Indonesian government. Lack of affordable and good-quality seed potatoes has been identified as one of the major constraints of potato production. This research built on previous work that recommended a Partial Seed Scheme to address this constraint, whereby seeds were initially imported from Australia and then multiplied in country to enable cheaper prices than fully imported seeds. Outputs could include a final analysis report and a proposal for a seed potato development project for eastern Indonesia.
