    This week’s “script” (Click here to download it) introduces a new type of resource that Farm Radio International will offer to our partners through our regular script packages. It is the first Farm Radio Issue Pack, providing key information, program ideas, and links for research on a single issue of importance to small-scale farmers. This issue pack focuses on Late Blight of Potato (LBP), the most serious potato disease in the world. LPB is a major concern to small-scale farmers who rely on potatoes for food and income, because it can cause losses of up to 80 per cent of the crop. We would like to strongly encourage you to provide feedback on this new info pack. Your feedback will help us improve our programs, and serve you better. Please send feedback to:
