The aims of the study were: 1) to determine the seeding performance, growth and yield performance of shallot cultivation from TSS (True Shallot Seed), 2) to determine farmers' perceptions of TSS shallot technology, and 3) to analyze the financial of TSS shallot farming in Gorontalo. This TSS shallot applied study was conducted in Gorontalo in 2019. To find out the best seeding technique using a Randomized Block Design (RBD) method with 6 treatments and 10 replications. Farmers' perceptions were analyzed using percentage techniques using a Likert scale based on 30 respondents. Farm financial was analyzed descriptively by calculating revenue, cost and R/C ratio. The results showed that the best TSS shallot seeding was obtained in raised beds with paranetal cover with a growth percentage >90 percent. The growth percentage of TSS after transplanting reached >80 percent with a productivity of 4.9 tonnes/ha. The average farmer's perception of TSS shallot technology showed that the TSS shallot cultivation technology produces tubers of excellent quality, saves seed costs, and farmers are interested in implementing it again. The results of farming financial analysis showed that the TSS shallot farming had an R/C ratio of more than 1 which means it is efficient to implement.
