SMP-18009 Iran potato value chain project (BO-48-002-006)

  • Meijer, Ben (Project Leader)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


The goal of the project is to:

Design a 4-year Netherlands Iran Potato Project to demonstrate a demand-oriented potato

supply approach that works for Iran, focusing on best practices on varieties, cultivation, cold

storage & climate control, minimising post-harvest losses and maximizing output of processing

plants, leading to one or more B2B multiple-year consortia.

Identify issues at the government or potato association level that could catalyse the further

development of the potato sector in Iran i.e. support to UPOV membership and implementation.
