Abstract

One alternative industrial waste that has not been widely used by the public is sago waste . Sago solid waste into compost that has brown to black coor . The purpose of this study was to analyze the structure of fresh sago waste , compost and compost dry sago sago black by using SEM ; assess the nutrient content . The results showed that sago waste wet, half-dry and dry sago has a pore size and larger than the black sago waste so they have the potential as a store of water and causing aeration. Measurement of nutrient content of compost sago either fresh , dried and black for the content of N, P and K are relatively high, successive N (1.32 to 1.67 %) , P (0.15 to 0.47 %) and K (1 , 39 to 2.42 %). Based compost structure and water-holding power is relatively high, the composting of waste sago potential for growing media such as plant nurseries
