Golden snail, Pomaceae canaliculata is a pest of rice plants, and used as a food source to be processed into satay, seasoning spices, biscuits, pastry, candy, crackers, animal feed, and fertilizer. In Lae Parira village, the golden snail is very diverse. Because of this reason, the preliminary study and utilization of golden snail used for of liquid organic fertilizer called (LOF) or and microorganisms local (MOL). The golden snail is obtained from a livestock that is still alive and then washed, boiled and removed from its shell. The golden snail meat is cut into small pieces, separated from the intestine and other visceral organs. Flesh of golden snail give coconut water, dilute brown sugar, EM4 and fermentation until 10-14 days. The use of mashed LOF can be sprayed on the surface of the soil or all parts of the plant. For fertilization in rice plants the recommended dose of 250 ml/15 liters of water is sprayed on the rice age 10 days after planting and repeated again at interval distance of 15 days. Fertilization on the plant recommended 200ml /15 liters of water sprayed on leaves and soil 7 days after planting and repeated every 7 days. The golden snail is potensial used for fertilizer in paddy plantation environmentally.
