Abstract: This study aims to (1) determine the effect of organic matter and planting systems , the production of potatoes and physical properties and chemical properties of the soil (2) know how much difference the productivity in the system of planting potatoes. The experiment was conducted in the village of Pattapang , District High Muzzle,Gowa. This study used a randomized design Separated (RPT). The first factor was the system of planting as main plots consisting of 2 treatment system that cut slope and direction of slope. The second factor was the dose of organic chicken manure as a subplot consisting of 4 levels of organic material that was no,10 tonnes/ha (8 kg /plot), 20 tonnes/ha (16 kg/plot) and 30 tonnes /ha (24 kg /plot). Thus there are eight treatment combinations,each combination was repeated 3 times and obtained 24 experimental plots. The results showed that the system does not affect the production of planting potato crop and soil physical and chemical properties. but a dose of organic material 30 tons / ha (24 kg/plot) shows the real effect on the physical and chemical properties of the soil. There was no interaction slope cutting and planting system in the direction of the slope with a dose of organic matter. Average productivity of the system of planting cut slope number of tubers per plant 11 bulbs, bulb weight of 38 tonnes/ha, while the direction of the slope system planting number of tubers per plant 9 bulb, tuber weight of 30.68 tonnes/ha. The usefulness of this study may be material information for farmers and policy makers. Advised farmers planting potatoes raised bed model with tilted 450 with consideration water use efficiency for potatoes.
