This experiment was done to investigate in vitro propagation and nucleus seed production efficiency of Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI) developed clone potato varieties. In vitro shoots of potato varieties BARI Alu-35, BARI Alu-36, BARI Alu-37, BARI Alu-40, BARI Alu-46 and BARI Alu-62 were used as planting materials and BARI Alu-7 was used as check variety. There was significant difference among the growth parameters of in vitro plantlets of the potato varieties. The maximum number of leaf (14.80), length of shoot (99.98cm) weight of fresh shoot (1.66 mg) was observed in BARI Alu-36. The highest length of root (5.54 cm), maximum number of primary root (17.00), number of secondary root (28.20) and fresh weight of root (0.359 mg) were observed in BARI Alu-36. The variety BARI Alu-36 showed better performance on most of the morphological traits under in vitro condition. On the other hand, survival percentage and nucleus seed (G1 generation) production of potato have been done from virus free in vitro plantlets of potato at net house. Maximum number and weight of G1 seed tuber per plant is 52.4 and 358.0g respectively was recorded in the BARI Alu-46.

Keywords: In vitro, Nucleus seed, Potato clone, Tissue culture, Propagation, minituber.
