ABSTRACT

Melons are one of the main priority crops that receive attention among other horticultural crops, as the price of melons is relatively higher. This study aimed to produce higher quality melon fruit with larger diameter and fruit weight, accompanied by increased production. The study was carried out at the Department of Agriculture Jl. Keramat Indah No.4 Selambo, Medan, North Sumatra from June 2016 to August 2016 using a Factorial Random Block Design with three replications. The first factor was the superior plant hormone dose (H) consisting of four levels: 0 mL /L water (H0), 1 mL /L water (H1), 2 mL /L water (H2), and 3 mL/L water (H3). The second factor was the dose of cow manure (P) consisting of four levels, namely: 0 t/Ha (P0), 20 t/Ha (P1), 40 t/Ha (P2), and 60 t/ha (P3). Plant hormone application as much as 3 mL/L of water and cow manure as much as 60 t/ha could increase the number of flowers, fruit diameter, and fruit weight of melon. The quality of melon produced is still not close to the desired quality of the world market, which is around 1.5-3.0 kg, because the optimum concentration of growth hormone and optimum dosage of cow manure has not been obtained yet.
