General purpose of the internship was to study the potato cultivation and to train technical and managerial skills in problem analyzing on field, especially on the purpose harvesting and postharvest handling aspect. The specific purpose was to observe the effect of harvesting time quality of the tuber, the influence of harvesting method efficiency of harvesting labour and losses of product, the influence of the height of fall out tuber on the damage of tuber, and to observe the percent loss that of product in the field and the storage. The results of specific aspect showed that longer harvesting time harder the tuber skin up to 100 %. Plants that harvested too young will produce small tubers percentage higher than large tubers. Acquisition of tuber fresh weight will be low if the harvesting time is less than 90 days and more than 100 days after planting. Method harvest 1 (digging with gala, drying, sorting and grading, rafting step 1, transport step 2 ) is the highest to get the crop quality. Method harvest 2 (digging with a hoe, drying, sorting and grading, rafting step 1, transport step 2) is the best way to get the efficiency of harvesting labour. Damage of tuber for seed is higher than tuber for consumption. The highest tuber damage occurs when the tuber is dropped at a height of 2.5 m. Percentage tuber losses in storage was higher than losses in the field. The range yield loss in the field between 1 % up to 3 % and yield loss in the storage between 9 % up to 52 %.
