Abstract

This paper synthesizes the retrospective studies done by the frontline extension systems across three agroecological
zones (AEZs) of potato cultivating regions in India viz., north-eastern region, north western hills and central
plain zones. The issues across these AEZs have been delineated. Accordingly, the on-farm research done to address most
prioritized problems across these three AEZs has been synthesized in order to emanate the different models of technology
application. The findings of the empirical synthesis showed that there were combinations of models of technology
dissemination apropos the agro-ecological zones. Likewise, the efforts made by the main (field) extension systems were
also documented for large-scale spread of potato production technologies.
