Planting geometry is considered as a very important tool for better production of True Potato Seed (TPS). The experiments were conducted to determine the suitable planting geometry for better yield from TPS mini tubers during autumn 2006-2007 and 2007-2008. It was revealed that even small size (5-20 g, 20-30 g) tubers planted at closer row and plant spacing (60 cm × 15 cm, 70 cm × 15 cm) produced 31.00%, 31.33% and 28.33%, 32.33% medium size tubers (35-55 mm size). Whereas wider spacing (70 cm × 20 cm, 50 cm × 20 cm) produced relatively higher number of large size tubers.
