EFFECTS OF RICE HUSK ASH AND EGGSHELL ON THE GROWTH AND YIELD OF RED CHILI (Capsicum annuum L.)
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to determine the effect of rice husk ash dosage and eggshell on the
growth and yield of red chili, and obtain a treatment that gives the best results on fruit red chili plant.
The experiment was arranged with Group Random Design (RAK) with factorial design with two
factors and three replications, factor I is dose rice husk ash consists of three levels ie A0: 0 g /plant,
A1: 25 gr / plant, A2: 50 g / plant, G3: 75gr / plant. The second factor is the dose eggshell consists of
3 levels ie: C0: 0 g / plant, W1: 15 gr / plant and W2: 30 gr / plant. The experiment will have 9
combination treatment from those 2 factors. The resutls showed that the provision of rice husk ash
give the significant effect on height plant growth and the number of leaves, the best dose is the
provision of rice husk ash 50 gr / plant. Provision of eggshell give real effect on plant yield of red
pepper that is the number of productive branches, number of fruits per plant and fruit weight crop
with the best dosage is 30 gr / plant.
