Intensive farming system (e.g. multiple cropping), use of area specific recommendation of fertilizers, use of cost effective pest control methods, introducing low cost storage facilities and cooperation of farmers to manage market problems should be adequately addressed to improve potato production and utilization in the study area. Furthermore, the extension service should take up potato as essential and specialty commodity giving priority to enhance its productivity. Input provision such as intensification of farm land, irrigation access, improved seeds, fertilizers and pesticides should also be adequately scheduled to meet the cropping calendar. The agricultural bureau of the zone and respective weredas should also start farmer-based seed production, multiplication and storage programs.
