Valorizing Andean Microbial Diversity
Welcome to the Valoram website
VALORAM — Valorizing Andean microbial diversity through sustainable intensification of potato-based farming systems
This project is funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013 (Grant No: 227522, 01/02/2009-31/01/2014).
The overall objective of VALORAM is to promote the sustainable development of potato-based systems in the inter-Andean valleys and Altiplano areas to focus on cropping systems that will make use of natural microbial resources as inputs to improve production of high quality potato crops.
The strategy for VALORAM implementation is to engage local and EU partners in developing collaborative research activities and synergies with e.g. local farmer associations to sustainably improve potato-based systems.
