This report details the outcomes of work undertaken in West Java, Central Java, West Nusa Tenggara and South Sulawesi to develop potato and cabbage integrated crop management systems, develop and improve farmer access to quality potato seed and build capacity for adaptive research and development. The report details the results from surveys of 80 potato and 50 cabbage crops covering crop agronomy, yield, economics, post-harvest management and potato seed supply, source and quality. It outlines the constraints to potato and cabbage production, with low soil pH being the major constraint. A modified farmer field school participatory technology transfer process facilitated farmer testing of a range of crop management techniques (potato late blight and clubroot management, liming), which is discussed in the report. Soil testing identified the Sembalun Valley as free of potato cyst nematode (PCN) for the potential development of a partial PCN free seed supply using seed imported from Australia. The impact of the project was assessed through farmer surveys, which identified a number of production, financial, environmental, social and gender impacts.
