This pandemic has resulted in a decline in household income. Therefore, it is necessary to find a solution to increase their household income through the cultivation of Butternut Squash (Curcubita moschata) which currently has a large enough opportunity and market potential to become a business. In an effort to achieve this target, the Butternut Squash cultivation innovation can be implemented through the "Learning by Doing" model, which is a cultivation implementation model that is directly carried out by the Women Farmers group on the land. The result of these activities show that the average butternut squash production reaches ± 150 kg. With the selling price of butternut squash Rp.8.000/kg, the average omzet obtained is ± Rp. 1.200.000,-. It shows that the cultivation of butternut squash can increase household income and encourage the women farmer group to continue the cultivation of butternut squash independently.</p> Sri Arnita Abu Tani Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Saintech Transfer Wed, 08 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0700 Eco-Enzyme Applications for Biosecurity and Sanitation on Goat Farm in Namorambe District, Deli Serdang Regency <p>Deli Serdang is a district that has the highest population of sheep and goats. The maintenance system is in the semi-intensive category so it can be categorized as an animal husbandry livelihood. An independent livestock business namely Al-Hafidz sheep and goat farming is located in Sidirejo Village, Namorambe District, Deli Serdang Regency. Problems in the Al-Hafidz farmer group are the decline in livestock health and poor sanitation of the cage. This problem can affect the health of livestock, especially skin diseases and can be transmitted to the breeder. The purpose of this community service activity is to improve biosecurity and cage sanitation using eco enzymes. Activities are carried out by making natural disinfectants that are easy and do not require expensive costs, such as eco-enzymes. Kitchen waste can be used as an ingredient to make Eco-Enzymes. Eco Enzyme is very useful as an insect repellent, house cleaning flies and equipment, insecticide, an antiseptic or natural antibacterial. The methods used are training, counseling, and assistance to farmer groups. The results achieved are increased knowledge of farmers regarding the manufacture of eco-enzymes as cage biosecurity by utilizing fruit peel waste, reducing household waste pollution, and reducing the cost of purchasing disinfectants.</p> peni patriani patriani Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Saintech Transfer Tue, 12 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0700 The Number of Bacteria Colonies in Carp Fish (Cyprinus carpio) After Administration of Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) and Orange Extract (Citrus jambhiri Lush.) <p>Fish is one of the most commonly consumed protein sources. Fish are at risk as a medium for the growth of microbial contaminants that can cause foodborne diseases. This disease can cause diarrhea and even death.Contaminant microbes can be found in foods consumed raw, such as Naniura, a typical Batak cuisine in the form of raw carp. Various natural spices such as lime and orange also have potential as antimicrobials. This study aimed to determine the antimicrobial potential of lime and orange juice in fresh carp samples. This study used extracts of lime and orange with concentrations of 6.25%, 12.5%, 25%, and 50%, respectively. The sample used is carp meat. The bacteria present in the sample were counted using the Total Plate Count (TPC) method before and after lime and lime extract administration. The results showed that before administering the two extracts, the total colonies in the sample could not be counted. The antimicrobial effect of orange juice extract began to be seen at a concentration of 12.5%, while in lime, it was only seen at a concentration of 50%. From the results of this study, it was concluded that orange juice extract had a better antimicrobial effect than lime.</p> Nenni Dwi Aprianti Lubis Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Saintech Transfer Wed, 08 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0700 Bokashi Application for Organic Farming in Manuk Mulia Village, Karo District <p>Berkah Mulia is a farmer group in Manuk Mulia Village, Karo Regency with 19 members. Livestock developments may cause several problems such as environmental pollution in the form of livestock manure which causes unhealthy environmental conditions. In addition, the unstable supply of chemical fertilizers and high prices are problems that are quite difficult to solve. The solution to this problem is the utilization of cattle feces in Bokashi which can improve the physical, chemical, and biological properties of the soil due to the use of excessive chemical fertilizers to improve soil quality. Bokashi is compost produced from the fermentation process or organic matter fermentation with EM4 technology. The method implemented in the community service is having interviews and discussions to find the solution for all problems. Then use teaching media in the form of banners and brochures about the method of making bokashi. Training, counseling, and mentoring are carried out by providing materials and practices for making bokashi using cow feces. The results of the activity show that this community service can increase the knowledge and skills of farmers by 84% related to making bokashi. This activity can also reduce environmental pollution and reduce the cost of purchasing chemical fertilizers so that horticultural crop production increases.</p> peni patriani patriani Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Saintech Transfer Tue, 12 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0700 Technical Guidance for Increasing Production of Cow Manure-Based Organic Fertilizer in Farmer's Groups in Konda District <p>This technical guidance activity aims to teach how to process organic fertilizer based on cow dung which is mostly produced by the community's livestock, so that it can reduce the cost of inorganic fertilizer and be more profitable.
