Nursery success is one of the important things in the oil palm plantation business. Nurseries are the beginning of efforts to cultivate palm plants, so the nurseries must consider all the conditions that can affect the development of the growth of oil palm plants. One important requirement is to conduct nurseries that tend to be organic, which are environmentally friendly. The use of organic fertilizers and sustainable biological fertilizers is very important in increasing soil fertility, growth and crop yields. Organic fertilizer that used is sugar mill wasted blotong and biological fertilizer is mychorrhizal. To determine the effect of giving sugar mill waste blotong and mycorrhizal applications on P nutrient levels in the Main Nursery. This study uses factorial randomized block design method (RAK). First factor is blotong (B): B0= control, B1= 500 gr blotong/seed, B2= 100 gr blotong/seed. Second factor is Mycorrhizal (M): M0= control, M1= 10 gr mycorrhizal arbusculae/seed, M2= 20 gr mycorrhizal arbusculae/seed. 9 treatment combinations were obtained with 4 replications, so the total treatment was 36. Blotong compost application significantly affected palm seed height, canopy dry weight and root dry weight, while mycorrhizal application only significantly affected seed height. the combination between them two gives the best effect on B1M1 treatment.

Potato production in Karo and Simalungun Regency of North Sumatra is severely limited by the high number of pest attacks, so that the use of pesticides is absolutely necessary. Increasing potassium doses and application botanical pesticides can be used as a strategy to reduce pest attacks on potatoes. This study aims to determine whether an increase in potassium dose and application of some botanical pesticides can reduce the percentage of pest attacks and then increasing potato production. Research was designed by factorial Randomized Block Design (RBD) with 2 factors, namely Potassium Dosage consist of 4 levels: K0 = Control; K1 = 100 kg / ha (30 g / plot); K2 = 150 kg / ha (45 g / plot); K3 = 200 kg / ha (60 g / plot). And the second factor is the type of botanical pesticide which consist of 3 levels, namely: N1 = 20 g Neem leaves/ liter of water; N2 = 20 g babadotan leaves/ liter of water; N3 = 20 g Kipahit leaves/ liter of water. Data were analyzed by analyzed of variance.The results showed that an increase in potassium dosage did not significantly affect the percentage of pest attacks and plant production variables. Botanical pesticides have a significant effect on the percentage of pest attacks, but have not significant effect on crop production variables. The lowest percentage of pest attacks was obtained from the application of botanical pesticides from babadotan leaf extract. In general, the percentage of pest attacks in the category was very low (<25%), so that not significantly affect to production variables.

Spodoptera litura F. is one of the important pests in Horticulture commodities which can cause damage 80% and up to 100%. Karamunting (Melastome malabathricum) is a wild plant that grows in Tarakan City. This plant is known to contain secondary metabolites which are thought to have the potential to control pests. This study aims to determine the potential of Karamunting extract as a botanical insecticide material to control armyworms. This study uses a completely randomized design (CRD) method with 1 treatment factor, namely the concentration of Karamunting leaf extract. Potential extracts as botanical insecticides were tested by dye method using 4 concentrations, namely 0 (control); 500; 1000; 2000; 4000; and 8000 ppm. The results showed that Karamunting leaf extract was able to control armyworm pests. Giving extracts of 8000 ppm (P5) in feed caused the highest decrease in eating activity up to 41,2%, larval mortality up to 85%, and the highest mortality rate after 7 days of observation. Decreased feeding activity and larval mortality were thought to be influenced by the presence of phenol compounds, fatty acids, terpenoids, sterols and alkaloids identified in the extract. Thus, Karamunting leaf extract has the potential to be developed as an active ingredient in botanical insecticides to control armyworm.
