EPI Assessment: Farm and Machinery Service Centers in Georgia

Realization of the business acumen of managers of the newly created farm service center (FSC) and machinery service center (MSC) network and gaps in the supply and demand of agricultural inputs are of critical importance to the USAID-funded Economic Prosperity Initiative (EPI). Strengthening managerial skills and identification of interventions to close those gaps are within the scope of the program. The purpose of this report is to assess those factors and identify steps to rectify any shortcomings.
