The objective of this research is to know the result of Liquid Organic Fertilizer (LOF) formulation on growth and yield of soybean crop. The hypothesis of this research is;(1) Suspected different LOF formulations provide different growth and yields of soybean crops;(2) suspected formulations F2 (LOF water hyacint + banana cobs) will have a better effect on the growth of soybean crop than other formulation;(3) suspected formulations F7 (LOF water hyacint + fish bone + chicken egg shell) will have a better effect on soybean crop yield than other formulations. The research was conducted by using Randomized Block Group Design with the following treatment: F = LOF Formulation; F0: without LOF (Control), F1: LOF water hyacinth (BioEcgon, F2 = BioEcgon + banana hump, F3 = BioEcgon + bone fish, F4 = BioEcgon + chicken egg shell, F5 = BioEcgon + banana hump + fish bone, F6 = BioEcgon + banana hump + chicken egg shell, F7 = BioEcgon + fish bone + chicken egg shell, andF8 = BioEcgon + banana hump + fish bone + chicken egg shell. From each treatment repeated 3 times, so it takes 27 plots of experiments (9x3 = 27) with a plot / plot of 18 m2 (3x6). The parameters observed are plant height, number of leaves and dry weight of soybean seeds / ha. The data obtained were analyzed by Analysis of Variants (Anova), if there is a real difference followed by 5% BNT test. LOF application with various formulations is expected to improve the growth of soybean crops, so it can increase the yield of soy / ha, in the long term aims to increase land productivity and can prevent land degradation, as well as one solution in overcoming the problem of organic waste.
