ABSTRACT

The best of Cocoa plant growth and production are inseparable from quality of seeds. Quality seeds are obtained when sufficient nutrient availability and vigorous sprouts. The priority of sprouts is related to the age-appropriate for transplanting. This study aims to determine the character of cacao seedling growth towards the provision of oil palm leaf compost fertilizer and the age of sprouts. This study used factorial randomized block design with 2 factors, the first factor is Palm Oil Leaf Compost Fertilizer with 4 levels, namely: K0 = Without Treatment/Control, K1 = 50 g/polybag, K2 = 100 g/polybag, K3 = 150 g/polybag and the second factor is the age of sprouts with 3 levels, namely: U1 = 7 days, U2 = 14 days, U3 = 21 days. The results showed that the effect of oil palm leaf compost application had no significant effect on all parameters. While the age of transplanting was gave the significant effect on all parameters. The best age of sprouts was 7 days..
