  Three levels of nitrogen (0, 225 and 300 kg N ha-1) and 4 levels of potassium (0, 125, 175 and 225 kg K ha-1) fertilizers were applied to potato mother plants (MF-II) for the production of high quality True Potato Seed (TPS). The effect of N and K application on the quality of TPS was evaluated by nutritional analysis, germination tests in Petri dishes and growth performance in nursery beds. Increase in N application significantly increased N, P, Ca, Mg and Na concentrations in TPS but K did not increase. Increase in K application significantly increased N, P and K concentrations, while decreases in Ca, Mg and Na concentrations in TPS were recorded. TPS that were harvested under different NxK combinations were classified into large-(>1.18 mm) and small sizes-(1.18 to 1.00 mm). Among them, large TPS showed the highest germination rate (97.7%) 12 days after sowing when 300 kg N and 125 kg K ha-1 was applied. The coefficient of velocity of germination in large TPS was highest (10.4) when 300 kg N and 125 kg K ha-1 were applied. Large TPS also showed high emergence rate (94%), seedling vigor (4.8) and dry matter content (10.5%) in nursery beds when 300 kg N and 125 kg K ha-1 was applied. Large TPS always showed better performance than small TPS. In conclusion, the combination of 300 kg N and 125 kg K ha-1 was the best combination for application to potato mother plants for the production of high quality TPS.

  Stage of maturity often affects the yield, dry matter, specific gravity and color of potato tubers. Comparative account of some processing traits of three local varieties of potato (viz., ‘Fata Pakri’, ‘Sada Pakri’ and ‘Rumana)’ harvested at 80, 90, 100 and 110 days after planting with those of True Potato Seed variety ‘BARI TPS-I’ is given in this study tuber samples were harvested after 10 -days of tuber skin-curing in the soil. Yield increased significantly up to the last date of harvest. Mature tubers exhibited significantly higher dry matter and specific gravity compared to immature ones. Tuber color was also significantly affected by time of harvest irrespective of varieties. The ‘BARI TPS-I’ gave highest tuber yield. ‘Fata pakri’ exhibited highest specific gravity and dry matter content. On basis of flesh color, ‘BARI TPS-I’, ‘Fata pakri’ and ‘Sadapakri’ were found suitable for chips. Bangladeshi potato farmers and processors will get benefited from the information generated regarding the appropriate harvesting time of local potatoes for processing industries.
