The experiment was conducted at the research field and post graduate laboratory of Plant Pathology Department, Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University, Dinajpur, during 2015 – 2016 to find out suitable method of farm saved seed potato production by the farmers. Farm saved seed was compared with certified seed, positive selection seed, seed plot technique’s seed and TLS seeds potato in the experiment. The maximum yield (27.72 ton/ha) was recorded from Positive Selection’s Seeds which was similar with Certified and Seeds of SPT. But the maximum plants (≥ 8 %, 7.33 % and 4.17 %) were infected by PVY, PLRV and PMV respectively in Farmer’s seed. The seed potatoes of positive selection and seed plot technique are the best alternate to supplement the certified seed.
