Red ginger has not been cultivated intensively so that there was a production decrease in 2018 of 4.24% from 2017. The increase in red ginger cultivation can be done by fertilizing organic fertilizers. This study aims to obtain an effective dose of organic fertilizer in increasing the growth and yield of red ginger. The research was carried out from March to October 2020, at the UNS experimental area in Wonorejo Village, Jatiyoso with an altitude of 778 masl. The study was conducted using a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with 1 factor and 5 treatments it is P0 (control), P1 (dose 1 kg/m2), P2 (dose 1.5 kg/m2), P3 (dose 2 kg/m2), and P4 (dose 2.5 kg/m2). The results showed that the application of organic fertilizer had an effect and the effective dose of organic fertilizer in increasing the growth and yield of red ginger was a dose of 2 kg/m2.
