Abstract


Dwarf elephant grass is one of the superior food to runinants. A lack of fertile land for the provision of livestock forage, so the planting is done on land which less productive in nutrients. The addition of manure is expected to improve nutrient-poor soils. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of type and dose of manure that is most optimal for growth of dwarf elephant grass. The kind of empirically used is True Experiment Design and the design use is Faktorial Design. Research design using a factorial randomized complete block design, with the first factor of the type of manure (cow manure, rabbits manure, chicken manure) and the second factor dose of manure (10 tons/ha, 20 tons/ha and 30 tons/ha). Data analysis technique used is a two-way analysis of variance and real difference test duncan 5%. The result showed that the type and dose of manure that affect plant height effect on the fifth day of observation, and the most effective with cow manure at a dose of 10 tons/ha. Widest leaf area and the effect on the fifth day of observation, and the most effective with cow manure at a dose of 10 tons/ha.. Influence the tye and dose of the observation of wet weight but no real effect on the manure rabbits at dose of 30 tons has a wet eight of theĀ  heaviest.
