Technical Instructions for Utilizing Chicken Waste as A Bokashi Organic Fertilizer in Lepo-Lepo Village, Barug a District, Kendari City
Increasing the population of chickens nationally and regionally will increase the
waste generated. If the waste is not managed properly, it has the potential to cause
environmental pollution, especially from manure that is produced by livestock every
day. Livestock rearing produces a lot of waste/manure which is abundant and has
not been used properly by the community. Chicken is one of the animals or livestock
whose livestock manure contains nutrients and organic matter which is quite high
and has the potential to produce organic fertilizer which is needed for the
maintenance of soil fertility. Organic fertilizers produced from the fermentation of
organic materials such as compost and manure using the help of effective
microorganism technology (EM4) are known as bokashi. The purpose of this activity
is to provide guidance and counseling in managing and utilizing chicken manure
waste as organic bokashi fertilizer as well as providing economic benefits and
benefits to farmers/breeders. The activity approach method is carried out by (1)
lectures and discussions about the prospects and benefits obtained from chicken
manure processing technology, (2) demonstrations in providing in-depth
understanding and introduction of ingredients used in the manufacture of organic
bokashi fertilizer, (3) the practice of making organic bokashi fertilizer using EM4
technology. The counseling material presented received a positive response and the
participants were quite enthusiastic, considering that so far, the manufacture of
fertilizers has been carried out without a touch of technology. It was concluded that
the practice of making organic bokashi fertilizer in addition to increasing livestock
production can also increase the income of farmers from the sale of organic bokashi
