This study was conducted at the STKIP Puangrimaggalatung Sengkang Biological Education Experimental Garden to test the potential of Aegle marmelos L. as biofertilizer and biopesticides. This experiment used a completely randomized design using four treatments with various levels of concentration of Aegle marmelos L. fermentation solution in 0%, 25%, 50%, and 75% respectively. In the case of biofertilizer, the solution is spray on rice plants with the intensity of spraying three times a week. Test biopesticides, the experiment used 120 golden apple snails (Pomacea canaliculata) were immersed in four levels of the solution. Test the effectiveness of Aegle marmelos L. as a biofertilizer with observation and measurement of rice plants for parameters of plant height, a number of tillers and panicle length starting in the first week after planting until the fifth week. Biopesticides tests were carried out by calculating the fertility of golden apple snails (Pomacea canaliculata) after immersion 36 hours, 48 hours and 64 hours. The data obtained were analyzed using anava test and HSD test at a significance level of Ã¡ 0.05. The experimental results showed that Aegle marmelos L fermentation was effective as a biofertilizer at a concentration of 75% in fermentation solution. This calculation shows the best results on the three parameters of the plant studied. While the biopesticides test also produced the lowest fertility at a concentration of 75% fermentation solution.
