Penanaman Mahoni (Swietenia macrophylla King.) Dengan Metode Bibit Akar Telanjang (Bare-root System)
Seedling damage during transportation often occurs in seedling that using container. The use of mahogany seeds sown on cocopeat as bare root seeds is expected to answer the problems during transportation from the nursery to the planting site. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Mahagony seedling age (on cocopeat medium in the nursery) and the length of time to delay planting (bare-root seedling). This study used a completely randomized design (CRD) and factorial completely randomized design (CRD) with two factors, namely the age of the seeds and the length of time to delay planting. The results of this study indicated that the growth of mahogany bare root seedlings was influenced by the age of the seedlings and the interaction between the age of the seeds and the delay in planting time. The old seedling (5,5 months old) showed better growth than other treatments. Delay in planting time of up to 6 days is still allowed because it can provide a good growth response.
Keywords: age of seed, bare root seedling, delayed planting time, Swietenia macrophylla.
