Activities including the demplot establishment and LOF production. The results of the activity concluded that Crocober organic fertilizer product derived from Chromolaena odorata is the best LOF type and has a better quality than commercial LOF which is distributed in the market and already have PATENT approval. Pruning can help provide HMT for cattle to cope with the high imports of Indonesian meat.
