PENGARUHPEMBERIAN PUPUK NPK TERHADAP PERTUMBUHAN BIBIT TANAMAN PALA (Myristica fragran Houtt)
This research aims to analyze the effect of NPK compound fertilizer and a good dose of growth of seedlings Myristica fragran Houtt. The study used completely randomized single-factor (RAL) design with 5 treatment levels and 3 replications, so there were 15 experimental units. The age of the seeds used is uniform that is 6 months.The treatments given were: F0 = without fertilizer (control), F1 = 2 gram / polybag, F2 = 4 gram / polybag, F3 = 6 gram / polybag, F4 = 8 gram / polybag. The frequency of giving is done every 2 weeks for 2 months. The data of this study were analyzed using Analysis of Variance and if there were significant differences, proceed with the BNT test (the Smallest Real Difference).The results showed that NPK fertilizer treatment had a significant effect on plant height variables at the age of 15 HSP and 60 HSP but did not significantly influence the variables of stem diameter, leaf number and leaf area. The optimal and economical NPK fertilizer dosage that can give good result is F4 treatment with dose 8 gram / polybag but its effect only on plant height.
