This study aims to determine the factors that affect the probability of farmers in applying the improved varieties of potato farming. Data used was primary and secondary. Data analysis used logit fungction. The results showed that the variables of age and number of family members significantly affect the chances of farmers applying improved varieties in potato. While farm size, education, and risk behaviors did not significantly affect farmers adoption of improved varieties in potato farming. The policy implication of this research is the productive age structure and labor supply coupled with increased human resource capacity through increased knowledge and insight farmers, increasing the opportunities for applying the improved varieties of potato farming
