The RAC technology is an innovative, smallholder farmer-oriented technology that cost-effectively addresses the issue of access to quality seed potato and its on-farm multiplication for seed production. It has been successfully developed in India under the Green Innovation Centre project of GIZ. Successful field trials and standardization of processes and agri-practices has led to a rapid adoption by farmers in India. BMZ and the University of Horticultural Sciences Bagalkot have joined forces to facilitate the introduction of RAC technology in Cameroon.
Key components are capacity building of scientists, local entrepreneurs and farmers, transferring of RAC-technology including provision of infrastructure and support, and capacity building exchanges between Cameron and India for stakeholders.
