RESPON BIBIT KELAPA SAWIT (Elaeis guineensis Jacq) TERHADAP ABU JANJANG KELAPA SAWIT PADA TANAH BEKAS TAMBANG BATUBARA DI POLYBAG
This study aims to determine the response of oil palm seedlings to oil palm bunch ash
and get the composition of palm bunch ash as the optimum media mix for planting oil
palm seedlings in the ex-coal mining soil in polybag. This study used a Completely
Randomized Design (CRD) with 4 treatments, the composition between ex-coal mining
soil and oil palm bunch ash (75%:25%), (50%:50%), (25%:75%) and six replicates.
The results showed that the composition of ex-coal mining soil and oil palm bunch ash
have significant effect on seedling height, seedling diameter, number of leaves, leaf
area, dry weight and root dry weight. The composition between ex-coal mining soil and
oil palm bunch ash (75%:25%) gave the best results to all parameter observed.
