The potato crop plays an important role in food security and rural development in many Latin American countries. Well-functioning potato supply chains are increasingly seen as effective instruments for improving rural livelihoods.

The course will address technical innovations related to cultivation and post-harvest management as well as institutional and organizational aspects of the supply chain.
