Brown Algae Extract is one of the ingredients used in organic fertilizers that is more effective for maximizing the growth and production of corn plants. This study aims to determine the effect of fermented brown algae extract on the growth of corn. The research was conducted in Sokkolia Field, Gowa District. The treatments were arranged in a randomized block design with 4 replications. The first treatment was algae extract which was inoculated by Trichoderma harzianum and Gliocladium sp. Bacillus subtilis and Paenybacillus polymyxa as well as unfermented algae extract. The algae extract was applied to corn by spraying. The parameters observed were plant height, stem circumference, cob length (cm), cob diameter, number of rows of seeds. The results showed that application of algae extract improved the quality and quantity of corn growth compared to the UPK (Urea + Phosphate + Potassium) control.
