Potential production of red ginger was about 22 tons Ha-1 within export volume up to 3.000 tons in 2018 and completely different to production yields, which decreased every year. The aim of this study was to determine the type of organic fertilizer that is effective to increase growth and yield of red ginger. The research was conducted in the Jatiyoso, Karanganyar in March-August 2020 with one-factor RCBD and five treatments, it is T0 (Control), T1 (Marketed Manure), T2 (Cow Manure), T3 (Goat Manure), and T4 (Chicken Manure). The results showed that the growth of red ginger in terms of plant height, number of tillers, number of leaves and weight of fresh and dry straw tended to be higher in goat manure but not significantly different from chicken manure and marketed manure. The yield of fresh rhizome weight with goat manure 10.338 tons-1, and storage rhizome weight of 9.168 tons-1 was the highest yield although it was not significantly different from chicken manure and marketed manure.
