Abstract
Corncobs and rice straws are the types of biomass waste in farmland that has yet to be optimally managed. The farmland waste management using perfect combustion technologies produced liquid smoke and biochar. The analysis of the production process of biochar and liquid smoke through perfect combustion signified a high accuracy. Biochar and liquid smoke were proven well-functioning for soil amendment. The study aimed to expose the interaction between liquid smoke and biochar in cayenne pepper crops’ growth. It used two factors, including Factor I: biochar dose and Factor II: liquid smoke dose. The findings concluded the result of interaction between liquid smoke and biochar based on the observation of the number of leaves and weight of fruits of cayenne pepper crops. The combination of 20 g of biochar and 60 ml/l of liquid smoke resulted in more numbers of leaves, reaching 76.50 stands. The combination of 30 g of biochar and 80 ml/l of liquid smoke yielded heavier fresh fruits of cayenne crops, reaching 304.17 g. The utilization of 80 ml/l of liquid smoke affected the crops’ height, number of leaves, and weight of fruits. Meanwhile, the utilization of 30 g of biochar averagely resulted in higher crops with more numbers of fruits and heavier fruits. The application of both biochar and liquid smoke could potentially increase the yields of cayenne pepper crops and raise the farmers’ income.
