Cassava plant, food, high yield, renewable energy



The aim of this research is to obtain high potency cassava plant which can be developed as the latest food and energy resource in the form of bioethanol. The study was conducted on marginal land in Maros Regency, South Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, from March to November 2017. It was conducted in the form of a two-factor factorial experiment based on a randomized block design. Five cassava clones used were; Local, Malang 6, UJ-3, MLG10311, and Adira 4, applied microbial fertilizer + organic growth regulator. This study applies an environmentally friendly agricultural system and does not use chemicals, crops are harvested at 9 months of age. The results showed that cassava grown on marginal land with the input of microbial fertilizer + organic growth regulator can increase the productivity of the land and produce food in the form of an average tuber 40.66 tons, if converted into biofuels as alternative energy sources produced bioethanol as much as 6.161 L. The development of high yield potency cassava on marginal land with environmentally friendly farming system is an effort of sustainable environmental management.
