Description: In Korea, seeding of potatoes use 2 to 4 division of seed potatoes as seed. However, due to the lack of precision seeding technology of divided potato, seeding work depends on human resources in potato production. For this reason, the automatic potato seeder which cuts and seeds seed potato at the same time is being developed to mechanize potato seeding work. In this study, in order to produced to develop automatic potato seeder, we manufactured prototype of potato seeder and analyzed sowing performance. The principle of prototype of automatic potato seeding machine is that the power transmitted through the drive wheel drives seed metering device and then picking up potato contained in the seed bins. Picked up potato is transferred to cutting device and cut into two halves by cutting blade and seeding for 2 rows. Result of field experiment shows that miss-seeding rate 3.5 %, distance between seeding potatoes 27.5
