Abstract:

The Experiment was carried out at the AICAT Beasu Viqueque Horticulture Center from June to August 2022, to determine the effect of the use of chicken manure organic fertilizer and organic mulch on the growth and yield of Zucchini. The experiment was arranged in a randomized complete block design consisting of two factors and three replications. The first factor is chicken manure with 3 levels of treatments and the Second factor is organic mulch with 3 levels of treatments. The result showed that the organic fertilizer as well as mulch significantly affected plant height and diameter of the stem, all yield and yield components. However, no indicated interaction between organic fertilizer and mulching was observed at the parameters of growth and yield. The yield per hectare of zucchini showed that the highest in the treatment of cow manure was 10 t h-1 about 75.87 t h-1 and the lowest is on without cow manure about 40.58 t h-1. On the other hand, the higher yield per hectare on organic mulch is rice straw and lower without mulch about 63.11 t h-1 and 39.73 t h-1s.
