This research was carried out for four months, from January to June 2021, at the screen house of Musamus University, Merauke. The method used in this study was a Factorial Randomized Block Design (RBD) with two treatment factors, the first factor being liquid organic fertilizer and the second factor being solid organic fertilizer. The results showed that applying liquid organic fertilizer and solid organic fertilizer had no significant effect on all experimental parameters. However, using solid organic fertilizer with a dose of 200 g gave an average yield that tended to be better for the plant height parameter, which was 24,64 cm, and the number of branches reached 5,33 branches. The application of 300 ml of liquid organic fertilizer gave an average yield that tends to be better on the parameters of the number of pods, namely 24,33 pods dry pod weight 25,00 g, the number of pods contained 23,33 pods. In contrast, the two factors gave an average value in the combination treatment. The average tended to be suitable for the parameters of wet pod weight 34,67 g, and the number of empty pods 4,33 pods. In the highest treatment, the importance of dry pods when converted to hectares resulted in 6,25 tons/ha production.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p><em>Keywords: peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.), liquid organic fertilizer, solid organic fertilizer, growth, and production</em></p> 2022-07-17T21:39:23+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## INFLUENCE OF THE COMPOSITION OF THE GROWING MEDIUM AGAINST TURMERIC PLANT GROWTH AND PRODUCTION (Curcuma Longa L.) 2022-07-17T21:45:56+07:00 yogi alamsyah Adrianus Adrianus Nurhening Y E Mariana L Resubun <p><strong><em>ABSTRACT</em></strong></p> <p><em>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; This research aims to determine the effect of the composition of the growing media on the growth and production of turmeric plants and to obtain the correct composition of the growing media for the growth and production of turmeric plants. This research was carried out at the screenhouse and in the laboratory of the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Musamus Merauke, from September 2021 to February 2022. This study used a non-factorial Randomized Block Design (RAK) consisting of three treatments and one control, 100 % soil, 25% soil + 75% sand, 25% soil + 75% husk, 25% soil + 75% saw dregs. The treatment was repeated six (6) times, and each replication contained three samples, and 72 experimental samples were obtained. Planting media treatment significantly affected plant height, number of tillers, number of leaves, the weight of wet stover, weight of wet rhizome rhizome, dry rhizome weight, and rhizome moisture content. The best growing media treatment for the growth and production of turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) was 25% soil + 75% husk.</em></p> <p><em>Keywords: turmeric, growing media, growth.</em></p> 2022-07-17T21:40:53+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## THE EFFECT OF APPLYING NPK PHONSKA FERTILIZER AND COW MANURE ON THE GROWTH AND YIELD OF EGGPLANT PLANTS (Solanum melongena L.) 2022-07-17T21:45:56+07:00 basilius payong Abdullah Sarijan Mariana L Resubun <h1><a name="_Toc92660614"></a><a name="_Toc92568867"></a><a name="_Toc74289143"></a><strong>ABSTRACT</strong><strong><br> <br> </strong></h1> <p>This study aims to find out the effect of npk phonska fertilizer and cow manure on the growth and yield of eggplant plants (Solanum melongena L.). This study was carried out for 3 months, namely in March 2021 to June 2021 in Kamundu Village, Merauke Regency, using a random group design (RAK) with 7 treatments, 3 repetitions and 2 fertilizations. The results showed that the provision of NPK Phonska fertilizer had a real influence on plant height at the age of 7 DAP and 14 DAP, and on observations of the number of branches at the age of 21 DAP and 28 DAP. From the various treatments of NPK Phonska fertilizer and cow pen fertilizer, it can be seen that the number of fruits in the fertilization treatment of phonska is 100 kg / ha (E), fertilizing phonska 150 kg / ha (F), and fertilizing phonska 200 kg / ha (G) is above the average value with consecutive results of 11.21 fruits/plants, 12.54 fruits/plants, and 13.75 pieces/plants: while production that is above the average value is in the treatment of fertilizing phonska 150 kg/ha (F), and fertilizing phonska 200 kg/ha (G) with an average yield of 4.74 kg/plant and 5.57 kg/plant.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><em>Keywords: Phonska NPK fertilizer, manure, eggplant yield growth</em></strong></p> 2022-07-17T21:41:38+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## ADAPTATION TEST OF FIVE VARIETIES OF RICE PLANTS IN THE PADDY FIELDS 2022-07-17T21:45:56+07:00 yoseph Wonmut Irba Djaja Rangga Kusumah <p><strong><em>ABSTRACT</em></strong></p> <p><em>This study aims to determine the right type of rice variety according to the conditions of the paddy field in Bokem village, Merauke district and to increase the productivity of rice cultivation in Bokem village, Merauke District.

This research was carried out at the House of Brawijaya street, Mandala Village, Merauke Regency, from May to July 2021. This study was compiled using a Completely Randomized Design (CRD) consisting of 2 treatments and repeated 3 times. The results of this study indicate that the administration of dolomite and carbonate has a significant effect on the growth rate of mycelium and has no significant effect on the growth of pinhead. The mycelium growth rate was in treatments D1 and D3 with an average of 27.3 days after planting, while the best pin head growth was in treatment B3 with an average of 24 days after planting. So the results of this study indicate that the administration of dolomite and carbonate has a good effect on the growth of mycelium and pin head of oyster mushrooms.</em></p> <p><em>Keywords: Dolomite, carbonate, mycelium, pinhead</em></p> 2022-07-17T21:45:12+07:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
