Abstract: True potato seed (TPS) technology is scientifically justified, technically feasible and economically viable method of potato production. TPS line are high yielding and also are more resistance to fungal, bacterial and viral diseases as compare to tuber seed. This paper is prepare to create awarness and benefits of TPS to concerned technicals from developing countries like Nepal. Number of technical papers published from different scientific communites were taken as reference materials. Varieties like HPS II/67, HPS 7/67, HPS 1/13, LT8 X TPS-13, LT8 X TPS67, C96H1329 X TPS-13, C96H0.24 X C99HT2-32.17 and C96H02.7 X TPS 13 are the recommended TPS variety for Nepal and geographical countries like Nepal. This review concluded that, the significant genetic improvement of TPS vigor and uniformity is also possible. Improvement of TPS can be achieve from improve agronomic practices by understanding physiological factors that influence production. Germination of TPS can be enhanced by sowning without drying and treatment with Gibberellic acid.
