Potato is crop of major significance food sources in Nepal. Purpose of the study was to examine current adoption level of potato production and identify major factors associated with adoption. Study was carried out in five districts namely Bara, Jhapa, Kailali, Kavre and Solukhumbu covering 503 samples. Districts were selected on basis of highest area of potato cultivated. In the district sample was randomly selected. Tobit regression was used to find out factor affecting adoption. Study revealed that variety recommended by Nepal agricultural research council covered 42.56 percent of total potato cultivated area and 51 percent of total production. Farmers found to adopt improved varieties Janakdev 16 percent followed by Cardinal 9.4 percent. Local variety like Namcheli 9.58 percent, Bhotange 10.94 percent and Lal Gulab 5.44 percent and Indian varieties like Arungold 8.87% of potato area. The results showed training and seed source was major significant factor affecting proportion of area allocated for improved potato. The probability of adoption increases by 9% if source of seed were formal and by 8% if farmers get training.
