This study aims to determine the effect of POC on the growth and production of spinach plants and the concentration of POC that gives the best effect and the highest yield on the growth and production of red spinach plants. This research was conducted using a randomized block design with four treatments: V0 = without application of liquid organic fertilizer (control), V1 = 20 ml.plant-1 , V2 = 40 ml.plant-1 , and V3 = 60 ml plant-1 , each treatment was repeated four times. The results showed that liquid organic fertilizer from cow manure had an effect on the growth and production of red spinach plants where the POC concentration that gave the best results and the highest yield was 60 ml.plant-1.
