The selling price of infertile hatching eggs (HE) is lower than consumption eggs and public ignorance about the differences between these two types of eggs makes HE eggs much sought after by the public. This is certainly a problem for producers of consumption eggs and the poultry breeding industry, because this incident is in conflict with the rules regarding the circulation of hatching eggs in the community. In addition, there is a lot of inaccurate information circulating in the community regarding HE so it is necessary to educate the public in responding to this condition. The socialization on how to identify or differentiate between consumption eggs and hatching eggs was carried out by means of discussions among lecturers, students, and community through online media. The benefits and results of this education are that participants know the rules regarding the circulation of HE in the community, participants know the correct information about HE eggs, and participants can know the characteristics of consumption eggs and HE in general one of which is based on the color of the egg shell, and participants can take a wiser attitude in the future. the day the phenomenon of HE eggs being sold in the market repeated itself.

Prevention of the Covid-19 virus can be accompanied by a strong immune system, namely by improving a healthy lifestyle with balanced nutritional foods. Nutrition education stands for an effort to increase knowledge of nutrition and eating behavior which is important for elementary school children. The media which common to use is a playing board that can help students to understand and recall what has been conveyed. Based on this reason, the Medan Kota 02 KKN-T group designed a program to increase understanding of nutrition to prevent Covid-19 among elementary students in MDA Al-Muhajirin, in Kota Matsum IV Village. The activity began by filling out a pre-test to find out student's knowledge before receiving education material. After that, continued with delivering nutrition and covid materials including an explanation of the balanced nutrition cone, then continued with the health protocol material, playing the board game by attaching food stickers to the picture of the balanced nutrition cone and matching the picture with the health protocol description. In the last session, all the students were asked to filling out the post-test. The impact of this program is that students understand and apply how to maintain healthy and balanced nutrition guidelines (PGS) and comply with prokes. The results indicated that the value of the participants from pre-test to post-test increased not too significantly, namely by 0.034, which could be caused by knowledge bias due to distraction. The distraction may be caused by the participants' unpreparedness in receiving the material, the class conditions that are not supportive, and the lack of initiative of the participants to take notes and understand the material provided. Nu-Covid eduboard may be an alternative program for increasing student knowledge about balanced nutrition guidelines and prokes in covid-19 pandemic situation.</p> Putri Mulifajar Marhabsyah Zhaki Muhammad Iqbal Nasution Hanny Nirwani Mulki Nur Alin Fiskianda Fadhilla Fani Nurul Fathia Nurul Fathi Qurrotul’aini megawati simanjuntak Copyright (c) 2022 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2022-06-23 2022-06-23 8 2 228 235 10.29244/agrokreatif.8.2.228-235 Pengenalan Sis-Log in Apps sebagai E-Commerce untuk Kelompok Usaha Tani Karawang pada Masa Pandemi Covid-19 https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/34182 <p>The problem that is happening in the field in the form of agricultural products is information that is often found today.

One of the problems is that most people are not aware of the importance of this ecosystem and still use fishing gear that is not environmentally friendly, this causes the coral reef ecosystem to also suffer damage. This community service aims to educate and provide technical guidance to the younger generation of Lalowaru Village about the benefits of sponges and how to transplant sea sponges. The youth group was chosen as the target because during this Covid-19 period the youth organization in Lalowaru Village, South Konawe Regency did not go to schools as usual, so this education can provide knowledge that can be applied in protecting the aquatic environment. The implementation method consists of two stages, namely the first stage of field observations including licensing with village officials and preliminary study interviews and the second stage of socialization and transplantation practices. The activity was carried out for two days with 10 participants. Measurement results were concluded through interviews from before carrying out activities and after service activities. The results of the training and mentoring activities show that all target audiences understand the benefits of sponges as pharmaceutical raw materials that can be developed, as well as transplantation techniques. This increase in the knowledge of the young generation of youth organizations occurred after technical guidance through this service.</p> Oce Astuti Oce La Sara Wa Ode Intiyani Mangurana Rahmadani Rahmadani Ira Ira Wa Nurgayah Emiyarti Emiyarti Muhammad Kholil Hidayat Abdillah La Ode Khairum Mastu Copyright (c) 2022 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2022-06-23 2022-06-23 8 2 243 251 10.29244/agrokreatif.8.2.243-251
