PENGARUH PUPUK KANDANG AYAM DAN NPK PAK TANI TERHADAP PERTUMBUHAN DAN HASIL TANAMAN TERONG (Solanum melongena L.) PADA TANAH ALUVIAL
This study aimed to determine the effect of interaction between chicken manure and Pak Tani's NPK on the growth and yield of eggplant (Solanum melogena L.) on alluvial soil. This study used a completely randomized design (CRD), with a factorial pattern. The treatment consisted of 2 factors, namely: the first factor is chicken manure and the second factor is Pak Tani fertilizer. The first factor is chicken manure with code (a) consisting of 3 levels of treatment, namely: a1 = chicken manure at a dose of 50 grams/polybag, a2 = chicken manure at a dose of 100 grams/polybag, and a3 = chicken manure at a dose of 150 grams. /polybag. The second factor is Pak Tani's NPK fertilizer with code (t) consisting of 3 treatment levels, namely: t1 = Pak Tani's NPK fertilizer at a dose of 1 gram/polybag, t2 = Pak Tani's NPK fertilizer at a dose of 2 grams/polybag, and t3 = NPK fertilizer Pak Tani with a dose of 3 grams/polybag. The results showed that the effect of chicken manure and Pak Tani's NPK fertilizer, both interaction and treatment, respectively, had no significant effect on all eggplant plant observation variables, namely: plant height, stem diameter, number of fruit planted, diameter of fruit planted and weight per fruit. The combination of treatments showed that treatment (a3t1) produced the highest average plant height of 62.00 cm. The combination of treatments (a2t2) resulted in the highest average diameter of the stem base being 4.78 mm. The combination of treatments (a2t2) resulted in the highest average number of fruit per plant 2.17 fruit. The combination of treatments (a2t2) resulted in the highest average fruit diameter per plant of 3.64 cm. And the combination in treatment (a2t1) resulted in the highest average weight per fruit of 98.26 grams.
