Abstract


ABSTRACT
The research aims to know the best of between interaction Arbuscular Mycorrhizal
Fungi (AMF) inoculations and the kind of manure on the growth and yield of corn
on peat soil. Research conducted at the Jl. Reformasi Gg. Racana Untan, Kelurahan
Bansir Laut, Kecamatan Pontianak Tenggara, of date of April 4, 2018 until June 24,
2018. The design used was a Randomized Competely Block Design (RCBD) with
two factors that AMF inoculation (M) and the kind of manure (P). There are 6
combination of treatment, 3 replications and each replication there were 3 plant
samples. The treatments were as follows without AMF inoculation + chicken
manure (m0p1), without AMF inoculation + goat manure (m0p2), without AMF
inoculation + cow manure (m0p3), inoculation AMF + chicken manure (m1p1),
inoculation AMF + goat manure (m1p2), AMF inoculation + cow manure (m1p3).
The variables observed in this study were plant height (cm), leaf number (sheet),
root infections by mycorrhizal (%), root volume (cm3), leaf chlorophyll (spad unit),
leaf area (cm2), dry weight (g), cob weight without skin (g), cob length (cm), cob
diameter (cm), and the weight a dry grain (g). The results of the research showed
there is interaction between AMF inoculations and the kind of manure on the
growth and yield of corn on peat soil. The interaction between AMF inoculation
and chicken manure showed the best growth and yield of corn on peat soil.
Keywords: arbuscular mycorrhizal, animal manure, corn, peat soil.
