Potatoes are one of the horticulture plants that have a favorable prospect if managed properly. Many factors can influence the production of potato farming. The efficient use of production factors will increase the productivity of potato farming. The research aims to (1) find out the general picture of potato farming in Merangin Regency and (2) find out the use of inputs that affect the production of potato farming in Merangin Regency. The method of sampling is simple random sampling in this study because potato farmers in the study area have homogeneous conditions. Samples were taken in two potato-producing centers in Jangkat District, namely Renah Alai Village and Pulau Tengah Village as many as 57 farmers were sampled.
