Types of nutrient sources other than from fertilizers that are known in general can also be sourced from the use of local microorganisms made from fruit, pineapple, vegetable or banana pseudo stem waste. The study aimed to compare the effectiveness of local microorganisms from pineapple and banana waste on sweet corn cultivation. The study consisted of two separate experiments, namely application of local microorganism pineapple and application of banana waste local microorganism. Each experiment used a completely randomized design consisting of 5 levels of local microorganism concentration, namely control (without local microorganism), concentration of 100 mL L-1, 150 mL L-1, 200 mL L-1 and 250 mL L-1. Each treatment consisted of three replications, so that each experiment consisted of 15 experimental units. The results showed the effectiveness of local microorganism from banana waste is better compared to local microorganism from pineapple as indicated by the of plant height, root dry weight, leaf area, relative growth of plant and corn ear without husk at 8 WAP.
