Plant prograpagation of Discorea alata generally uses whole tuber of D. alata with weight of 100-500 g. this can produce multiplication ratio of this plant of 0.2 -1. The usage of small portion of the tuber will reduce this higher ratio. The current study aims to reduce this higher ratio using small portion of the tuber from the head, middle and tail sections with the weight of 25-50 g. the results show that the usage of these small portions reduce the multiplication ratio to be 0.025-0.03.
