The production of potato seeds, which has increased in productivity from year to year, often results in poor yields. Mitigation measures for production failure are taken to overcome this risk. These risks have a significant impact on reducing productivity, so they require intensive management. The purpose of this study was to identify, analyze, and create mitigation strategies for the factor that cause yields to fail (reject) in potato seed products. The method used is FMEA (Failure mode and effect analysis). Based on the probability level of the risk occurrence (occurrence) and the impact of the risk that appears (severity), there is a potential risk with category 3 which has the highest rating. The results showed that there were 3 risk categories that could cause a decrease in productivity, namely the harvesting process, the variety of seeds used, and pest and disease
attacks. In an effort to overcome the three risks, appropriate mitigation measures are needed by identifying, analyzing and developing mitigation strategies that occur in the production of potato seeds which can be
reduced and productivity can be increased.
