ABSTRACT

 

To test the quality of various compositions of liquid organic fertilizer product aimless originated coconut fiber and weeds C. odorata based on the length of fermentation by Micro-organisms Local (MOL) has been carried out for 2 months. Trial comparing different composition of raw materials, namely: P1 (20% C. odorata+70% coconut fiber+10% MOL), P2 (40% C. odorata+50% coconut fiber+10% MOL), P3 (60% C. odorata+30% coconut fiber +10% MOL), P4 (80% C. odorata+10% coconut fiber+10% MOL) and P5 (MOL), which was fermented for 15 and 45 days. Measurements of nutrient composition done for both macro and micronutrients. From the experimental results was known that there are variations in nutrient composition based on the composition of constituent materials, either after 15 days or 45 days of fermentation. There was increased content of macro and micronutrients between fermented for 15 days to 45 days, especially for N but not for others. Nutrient composition in accordance with the provisions of the minister of agriculture, except for levels of C-organic unfulfilled after15 days and 45 days of fermentation. It is therefore recommended to perform the decomposition technique alternating aerobic and anaerobic, in order to get a quality liquid fertilizer is more optimized and tested for various types of crops.
