Abstract


This study aims to determine the effect of apu-apu organic fertilizer on the growth of seedlings cempedak.  The study was arranged using a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with the v fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); a3 (18 g of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 6 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); a4 (36 g of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 2 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); a5 (36 g of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 4 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); a6 (36 g of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 6 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); a7 (54 g of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 2 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); a8 (54 g of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 4 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF) L-1 water); and a9 (54 kg of solid organic fertilizer (SOF) + 6 ml liquid organic fertilizer (LOF)  L-1 water). The variables observed were nutrient content of solid and liquid organic fertilizers from apu-apu, plant height, leaf number, and stem diameter respectively aged 30, 60, and 90 days after planting (DAP). The results showed that the content of liquid organic fertilizer apu-apu has pH H2O 4.85; C-Organic 1.42%; N-Total 0.05%;  C/N ratio of 26.36; P2O5 0.02 ppm; and K2O 0.21 ppm. Meanwhile, solid organic fertilizers contain pH H2O 8.25; C-Organic 22.86; N-total 2.83%; C/N ratio of 8.08; P2O5 0.73 ppm; and K2O 0.74 ppm. The application of apu-apu organic fertilizer, significantly affect the average height of plant and stem diameter age 60 and 90 DAP, and the number of leaves age 30 DAP. But no significant effect on plant height  and stem diameter of 30 DAP, and number of leaves aged 60 and 90 DAP. The treatment of a5, a6, a7, a8, and a9 gave higher growth of plants, number of leaves, and diameter of cempedak seedling better than the control.
