9th Triennial Conference of the African Potato Association starts tomorrow

Tomorrow starts the 9th Triennial Conference of the Africa Potato Association. The event takes place in Naivasha, Kenya and will gather potato scientists from Africa and around the world to discuss issues around five major themes:

  1. Appropriate policies for germplasm exchange, food and nutrition security, and trade in Africa
  2. Getting seed systems moving
  3. Major advances in breeding and crop management
  4. Innovations in postharvest management, processing technologies, marketing systems and  technology transfer
  5. New evidence concerning nutritional value and changing behaviours

We will be present at the conference with a presentation on “Ex-ante Evaluation of Improved Potato Varieties for Sub-Saharan Africa”, which will also soon be available on this blog.

The conference can be followed on Twitter at @APA2013 and on Facebook under AfricanPotatoAssociation.
