Abstract


This study aims to determine the growth and production of two varieties of tomato plants(Lycopersicum esculentum)with vermicompost fertilizer. Research conducted at the experiment station and Agribusiness Center of Ornamental Plants Urban Surabaya, with a height of approximately 5 meters above sea level. The materials used growing media as much as 10 kg of garden soil and fertilizers containing vermicompost and tomato seed varieties and varieties Permata 1 and varieties Ratna Ew Select F1. This study uses a completely randomized design (CRD), which is arranged as factorial with two factors: Factor I: fertilizer vermicompost (K) with four levels of treatment that K0= 0 kg / polybag; K1= 1 kg / plant; K2= 2 kg / polybag; K3= 3 kg / polybag and Factor II: and varieties of plants (V) with 2 levels, namely V1= Variety Gem F1;V2= Variety Ratna Ew Select F1.The parameters observed were plant height, stem diameter, leaf area, leaf number, number of fruit per plant, weight of fresh fruit per plant, plant fresh weight and dry weight of plants. The results showed that of all the observed variables turns vermicompost fertilizer as much as 10-30% of the volume of growing media on tomato affect the increase in plant height, stem diameter, leaf area, leaf number, number of fruit per plant, weight of fresh fruit per plant , plant fresh weight and dry weight of plants compared to control treatment or without fertilization. Statistically that treatment K2 (2 kg / polybag or 20% of the volume of growing media) based variable crop rated better and more efficient.
