  1. Good quality potato seeds can be produced in the state. Farmers need not depend upon other states for quality potato seed.
    Cost of seed will be reduced and quality Seed will be easily available to the farmers. Disease free potato can grown in the state which will increase export potential of potato from state. This will reduce cost of cultivation and increase income of farmers and potato cultivation will be more profitable.
