This manual targets potato cultivators and extension agents. It suggests a method to set prices for seed potatoes alternative to the standard one based on costs per unit. This new method uses information on the benefits to farmers of using quality seed in addition to costs per unit. It requires data produced from on-farm trials, market price monitoring and cost accounting to be implemented. An example is given using experiences from Ecuador.
