This research was conducted at the Departement Plant Pest and Diseases, University of Brawijaya. Microbe isolated from the surface of chilies in a different age. Isolates microbes were tested for antagonistic potential against <em>C. capsici</em>. The persistence of the potential antagonist under different conditions of pH, temperature, and the light was also examined. An antagonist test was conducted to confirm the antibiosis mechanism. Furthermore, extracts were characterized using pH, light exposure, and temperature. The most potential antagonist was identified as isolate C3C with 36.20% inhibition. pH 5, 35<sup>0</sup>C temperature, and light exposure of 0% is the best media optimization with the percentage of inhibition &nbsp;37.5%, 38.2%, and 42.3%.</p> Ahmad Ilham Tanzil Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Pertanian Tropik 2020-09-08 2020-09-08 7 2 152 156 10.32734/jpt.v7i2.4329 Endophytic Fungi Producing Indole Acetic Acid from Melastoma malabathricum L. and Rhodomyrtus tomentosa (Aiton) Hassk. In Indonesia https://talenta.usu.ac.id/jpt/article/view/4316 <p><em>Melastoma and Rhodomyrtus are known to have widespread distribution and considered as medicinal plants in Indonesia. However, information about the diversity of endophytic fungi in Melastoma malabathricum (MM) and Rhodomyrtus tomentosa (RT) is limited and their potential as an alternative source of&nbsp; indole acetic acid (IAA) </em><em>has never been reported before</em><em>. The purpose of this study was to determine the diversity of endophytic fungi from MM and RT which have the potential as an alternative source of&nbsp; IAA and potentially induce the germination of Capsicum annuum L. seeds. The research consisted of isolation of endophytic fungi, IAA production analysis, and capsicum seed germination test. Samples of MM and RT were obtained from Kelubi, East Belitung, Indonesia on August 7<sup>th</sup>, 2017. Endophytic fungi were isolated from various organs including : leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and fruits using surface sterilization method on the Malt Extract Agar (MEA). After purification, a total of 33 fungi were obtained (15 isolates from MM and 18 isolates from RT). Each endophytic colony shows&nbsp; unique and varied colony on a PDA medium. </em><em>17 endophytic fungal isolates in this study tested positive for IAA production.</em><em> All strains produced different levels of IAA, where MIVA2, MIVD1, and MIVA3 had the highest levels of IAA concentrations (89 ppm, 82 ppm, and 70 ppm&nbsp; respectively). In the term of germination, there were 5 isolates which have high potential in inducing Capsicum annuum L. seeds, namely; MIVA3, MIVF3, RIVD2, RIVD5, RIVD6, RIVD9 (90%, 95%, 100%, 90%, 100%, 90%, respectively).</em></p> Ivan Permana Putra Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Pertanian Tropik 2020-09-08 2020-09-08 7 2 157 167 10.32734/jpt.v7i2.4316 Hedonic Attributes of Mussels Sauce as Seasoning https://talenta.usu.ac.id/jpt/article/view/4309 <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>North Sumatera east coastal, had abundance the type of mussels.

The aim of the research is to know the panellists acceptance of the mussels sauce. The experimental methods are used in this research with 3 treatments and 3 repetition.

Indonesian particularly needs more land to be used or utilized to increase food productivity and to create field-work.This view is considered because of the decreasing mineral lands in Indonesian. By conducting a study on the mapping of the thickness and maturity level of peat, it can provide the usage of peatland regarding cultivated land. The result of mapping can appropriately be used to design land utilization and model of production system. This study was carried out &nbsp;at Simpang Wie Village, East-Langsa Sub-district, Langsa City, as known which is known as one of the Peatland areas in Langsa City. The study was conducted in December 2019. Survey method design was employed in this research while the research location was determined purposively, which means that it is directly chosen or purposively chosen because the location is a peatland. Data types applied by field observation in this study were primary and secondary data. In this study, This research requires four main following phases; (1)Preparation&nbsp; (2)Preliminary-Survey (3) Field-Implementation, and (4) Data Analysis/ Discussion. The research result shows that the peatland area width of 4.94 9 (Ha) was classified into two types peat thickness: Shallow/Thin Peat with thickness &gt; 40-100 cm (1.95 Ha), and Moderate Peat with thickness of 101-195 cm (2.99 Ha). Based on the observation, the maturity Level of&nbsp; Peat also classified into two maturity levels, those are Hemic Maturity Level and Sapric Maturity Level. Therefore, the use of peatland area according to thickness and maturity level concluded that the&nbsp; thickness of 40-100 cm can appropriately be used to cultivate paddy-fields, palawijas and plantation crops (horticulture). Besides, the thickness of 101-195 cm can appropriately be used to cultivate plantation crops (horticulture), vegetable crops (olericulture), and fruit crops (fruticulture). At least, this land is suitable to be used for agricultural cultivation because it has hemic and sapric maturity level</em>.</p> <p><em>Key words</em>: <em>peat, thickness, maturity level , hemic, sapric, </em><em>cultivated</em><em> land</em></p> prekdisampangate berutu Copyright (c) 2020 Jurnal Pertanian Tropik 2020-09-20 2020-09-20 7 2 174 184 10.32734/jpt.v7i2.3964
