Abstract

The study was done to assess the effect of zeolite concentration and time of zeolite soaking
in cow urine on the growth and production of baby corn. A factorial completely randomized design
with two factors was used. The first factor was zeolite concentration (0%, 5% and 10%). The second
factor was soaking time in cow urine (1,2,3 and 4 weeks). Results showed that corn plants treated
with 0% zeolite (fermented urine) have higher stem circumference, leaves color intensity and higher
cob weight. Plants that were given a concentration of 5% zeolite produced male flowers late. The
duration of zeolite immersion in cow urine did not significantly affect all observed variables.
Keywords: stem circumference, male flowers, baby corn, zeolite
