Cayenne pepper is a cultivated plant that is susceptible to flooding caused by poor drainage systems on agricultural land. Plants are more sensitive to flooding in the generative phase. The generative phase of the plant begins when it is approaching the flowering process until it bears fruit. The objectives of this study to examined the impact of cayenne pepper cultivar selection and repeated flooding on the average flowering time, fruiting time and the percentage of fruit loss. Three types of cayenne pepper cultivars were used, namely Mhanu XR, Sret and Cakra Hijau. Repeated flooding treatments were flooding 1 time, 2 times, 3 times and control without flooding. The data were analyzed using a two-way ANOVA statistical test. The results indicated that cultivar selection had a significant influence on the average flowering time, fruiting and fruit loss percentage. Meanwhile, repeated flooding and interaction between cultivars and repeated flooding had no significant effect on flowering time, fruiting and the percentage of fruit loss. The conclusion shows that the three cultivars of cayenne pepper have different responses to repeated flooding on the parameters of the time of flowering, fruiting and the percentage of fruit loss with the most adaptive cultivar, namely Cakra Hijau. The Cakra Hijau cultivar can be a good candidate in poor drainage than the Mhanu XR and Sret cultivars.

Research on Hydroseeding in Indonesia is still limited. The application of this hydroseeding technique can be developed for landslide management. This study aims to analyze the percentage of growth (viability) and growth of Japanese grass (Zoysia japonica) planted on landslide soil media at various levels of slope. This research was carried out at the Central Laboratory and greenhouse of the Malang Agricultural Institute in March – July 2020. The soil media used was obtained from landslides in Ngantang, Malang Regency. A total of 5 kg of media was put in a plastic box. Then the box is placed on a shelf with a slope of 30o, 50o, and 70o. Japanese Grass Seeds obtained from the market are mixed with compost, soil conditioner, guar gum, water to form a Hydroseeding formula. The formula is then sprayed onto the growing media. The results showed that the application of hydroseeding with Japanese grass seed (Z. japonica) on media placed with a slope of 70o could potentially be used as a formula for the revegetation process of landslide-affected land. The hydroseeding treatment at this slope resulted in the highest seed viability and growth rate. Thus, Japanese grass (Zoysia japonica) has the potential to be used as a pioneer plant in land reclamation.

The purpose of this study was to determine blood sugar levels after treatment with boiled Yakon tubers (SS). This type of research is an experimental design with a pre-post test with a control-group design. The independent variable is the boiled water of Yakon tubers, the dependent variable is blood sugar levels. The samples were divided into 2 groups: the treatment group of boiled Yakon tuber (Smallanthus s) dose 1 (350 mg/kg/BW) and dose 2 (700 mg/kg/BW), the control group. Each group consisted of 6 rats. Mice were conditioned to hyperglycemia by being given a high-glucose diet for 9 weeks. Blood sugar measurement using Gluco-D, data analysis used is Paired Sample T-Test, Independent, Sample T-Test, and One Way Anova. The results showed that treatment dose 1 experienced an average decrease in blood sugar levels by 158.5 mg/dl (p 0.004) and dose 2 by 161.17 mg/dl (p 0.001). The results of the study were the control group and treatment 1 (Sig.2-tailed) = .000 (0.05) and the control group with treatment 2 (Sig.2-tailed) = .000 (0.05) While the comparison results showed that there was a difference between the control group with treatment group 1, and control group with treatment 2 respectively (Sig.2-tailed)=0.000, =0.05. The results of this study indicate that there is an effect of boiled water from Yakon tubers. The Yakon tuber boiled water can be implemented as an alternative in the management of blood sugar in conditions of diabetes mellitus.

The aim of this study was to identifiy the stomata morphological characters of Pteridophyta in the ​​Parangkikis Pagerwojo Waterfall area, Tulungagung. The first step of stomata observation was preparation of the abaxial leaf slice. The preparation was carried out by the replica method. Stomata character studied include types and size of stomata, the number of stomata and epidermis cells, and value of the stomatal index. The result of this study showed that stomata types of Pteridophyta were polocytic and anomocytic. Of the 15 Pteridophyta species observed, the all of stomata type were polocytic, except Selaginella which had type stomata anomocytic. Stomata oval was found in Selaginella intermedia and Phymatosorus sp., slightly oval (kidney) was found in Asplenium apogamum, Dryopteris sp., Asplenium normale, Nephrolepis bisserata, Nephrolepis davallioides, Asplenium nidus, and Pteris longipinnula sp., spherical was found in Dicranopteris linearis, Cyclosorus arida, Goniophlebium percussom, and Goniophlebium manmiense, and nonconcave was found in Coniogramme fraxinea. Stomata size affected the number of stomata. If the size of the stomata was small, the number of stomata was increasing. The highest number of stomata was found in D. linearis, which was 362, while the least number of stomata was S. intermedia, which was 18. Data on the number of stomata and epidermal cells were used to determine the stomatal index. The highest stomata index was found in D. linearis, which was 22.05% and the lowest was C. fraxinea, which was 5.44 %.  Keywords: Anomocytic, Parangkikis, polocytic, Pteridophyta, stomata

Flavonoids and quercetin are metabolite compounds contained in parasite plants. The role of the compounds is as an antioxidant that can protect cell damage from free radicals,for example liver. The presence of antioxidant can neutralize and protect the liver from free radicals. Liver is an organ that is vulnerable to damage caused by drugs or toxic chemicals because the liver is the center of metabolism in the body. Can be known with indicators of increasing level of SGOT, SGPT total bilirubin and histopathologic liver. The purpose of this study to determine the effect of the combination of extracts of tea parasite and mango parasite (EMBTBM) on levels of liver function in female rats (Rattus norvegicus) for 28 days. Data were analyzed using ANOVA version Jamovi The number of test animals is 20 female rats were divided into four groups, group 1 as a control, group 2,3,4 as a treatment. The treatment groups was given EMBTBM with different doses of 250 mg/kgBW, 500 mg/kgBW and 1000 mg/kgBW. Based on the research results show that a significant value difference between the group was p> 0,05. Therefore EMBTBM given to female rats for 28 days with a dose of 250 mg/BW, 500 mg/kgBW and 1000 mg/kgBW in the treatment group all dose were not significantly different compared with controls. So that the level of liver function in female rats was safe (not toxic) and has no effect on liver histopathology of female wistar rats.Keyword: Subchronic, Extract and liver function
