The Effect of Application Tea Extract and Number of Seeds per Hole on Growth and Yield of Celery (Apium graveolens L.)
Effect of Application Tea Extract and Number of Seeds per Hole on Growth and Yield of Celery (Apium graveolens L.)
This study aims to determine the interaction effect of tea extract and the number of seeds per hole on the growth and yield of celery plants. This study used a factorial Completely Randomized Block Design (RAKL), which consisted of 2 factors, each treatment combination replicated 3 times. The two factors were: (1) the number of seeds per hole (S), with 3 levels, namely: S1: 1 seed per hole, S2: 2 seeds per hole, S3: 3 seeds per hole. (2) tea extract, with 4 levels, namely: T0: control, T1: dose of tea extract 1 ml/hole, T2: dose of tea extract 2 ml/hole, T3: dose of tea extract 3 ml/hole, obtained 12 treatment combinations. Analysis of the data using Analysis of Variation (ANOVA), if it is significantly different then a further test is carried out, namely the 5% level BNT test. The results showed that: (1) the interaction between the application of tea extract and the number of seeds per hole did not affect the growth and yield of celery plants, (2) the treatment of tea extract 3 ml/hole with 2 seeds per hole gave the best results on the wet weight of the stover. of 130.77 grams per hole is equivalent to 10.9 tons/Ha.
