Feces and urine from beef cattle are not yet fully optimized by farmers. If there is a modification process with the feces and urine, it can be a source of organic fertilizer. Other than helping farmers with their fertilizer needs and supply, it will also reducing the environmental pollution. The purpose of this research is to understand feces and urine modification produced by beef cattle to increase the productivity of sweet corn’s plant. Randomized Block Design (RBD) 7 treatments and 5 repetition groups were being used in this research. P0 (without fertilizer), P1(1 NPK),P2(¾NPK),P3(¾NPK+ ½Organic),P4 (¾ NPK+ 1 organic), P5 (¾NPK+ 1½ Organic),P6 (1 NPK + 1 organic). Variable being observed consisted of: growth power (%), fruit weight (g), sweet corn production (ton ha-1), and sweet corn waste production (ton ha-1). Data obtained were being analyzed by an analysis of variance and Duncan’s test. The results showed that the growing power of P3, P4, P5, and P6 applications were higher (P <0.05) than P2 and P1, the fruit weights of P5 applications were greater (P <0.05) than P3, P2, P1, and P0, and fruit weight from applications P1, P2, P3, and P4 were not significantly different (P <0.05). Likewise, with the application of P4, P5, and P6, the result of fruit weights was not significantly different (P <0.05). The production of sweet corn from P3, P4, P5, P6 applications was higher (P <0.05) than applications P0, P1, and P2. The highest production of sweet corn waste was obtained from the application of P4 and P5 and the lowest was in the application of P0 (P <0.05), between P4 and P5 the production of sweet corn waste was not significantly different (P> 0.05). The productivity of sweet corn (Zea mays Saccharata Sturt) through the application of modified beef cattle feces and urine with a combination (¾NPK + 1½ Organic) on sweet corn (Zea mays Saccharata Sturt) land increased as seen from the growing power, fruit weight, Sweet Corn production (Zea mays L. saccarata sturt.), and sweet corn waste (Zea mays saccharata sturt).
