Abstract In the framework of the BOCI-project ‘Sustainable potato production in Indonesia’ (BO-10-001-230) trails were performed in West Java. The purpose was to evaluate the agricultural performance and processing quality of 10 varieties, half of which were introduced from the Netherlands by a Dutch seed potato company. The trails were performed by the Indonesian Vegetable Research Institute (IVEGRI) at two locations: the experimental farm of IVEGRI in Lembang (1250 m a.s.l.) and at a farmer’s field in Pangalengan (1300 m a.s.l.). Each trial consisted of three replications in a randomised design and each individual plot contained 50 plants. Agronomic observations were made throughout the growing season; yield was measured using various parameters and the suitability for chips (crisps) and French fries production was established directly after harvest and after two months of storage. The Dutch varieties were of different market types: specific chips varieties, dual purpose varieties (French fry and table) and a French fry variety. The local varieties included local standard Atlantic, a chips variety, Granola which is a table potato and the dominant variety of Indonesia covering an estimated 90 % of the potato growing area. The other varieties were released by IVEGRI or are breeding selections
