One of the efforts to support a healthy and sustainable agriculture program in Indonesia is to reduce the use of chemical fertilizers by using organic fertilizers. Cow manure, goat manure, chicken manure, rice husk and other waste have not been utilized optimally in agricultural cultivation even though it can be used as organic fertilizers. Although dragon fruit plants (Hylocereus undatus (Haw.) Britton & Rose) has increasing planting areas in Lombok Island, research on the use of organic fertilizers has not been done much. This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of the use of various types of organic fertilizers on growth and yield of dragon fruit plants. The experimental design used was a randomized completely block design with 6 organic fertilizer treatments, namely: 1) cow manure, 2) goat manure, 3) chicken manure, 4) rice husk compost, 5) sand, and 6) control (no fertilizer). Each plant was given 5 kg of organic fertilizer with 3 replications. The parameters observed included the number of shoots, number of fruits and fruit weight. The results show that the application of cow manure produced the highest number of shoots, while the application of chicken manure was attributable to the highest fruit weight.
