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.
