The Effect of Covering Media Composition and Fertilizer Cow Manage on The Growth of Palm Oil (Elaeis Guineensis J.) Seeds in Pre-Nursery
Keywords:Planting Media, Cow Manure, Growth, Seeds, Palm Oil
The impact of using humus as a medium for planting oil palm seeds continuously can
reduce the availability of humus in the field. Therefore, the use of subsoil as a planting
medium and the use of cow manure are expected to increase the growth of oil palm
seedlings. The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of the composition of
the planting medium on the growth of oil palm seedlings. The research was conducted
in Simalas Village, Serdang Bedagai, North Sumatra. The research method used was a 2
factor randomized block design with 9 treatments and 3 replications. The results showed
that topsoil and subsoil planting media with a ratio of 1:1 had an effect on increasing
plant height and leaf number of oil palm seedlings, while the application of cow manure
25 g/polybag also had an effect on increasing the number of leaves of oil palm
seedlings. There is a treatment interaction between the composition of the planting
medium and cow manure on the number of leaves of oil palm seedlings.
