Abstract

This research was conducted on gromosol soils, especially forTectona Grandis plantation,
aimed at restoring soil health and fertility due to the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Through the rate of microbial activity which is controlled by the biohole, periodic investigations
of changes in soil acidity, infiltration and electrolyte conductivity levels around the center of the
biohole are the centers of microbial distribution.
As a comparison, observations were made using biohole which was only filled with water
without microbes. Furthermore, these two conditions, namely biohole with microbes and biohole
without microbes, were compared to changes in soil parameters: soil acidity, infirtration rate and
electrolyte conductivity levels.
The research was carried out on April to November 2019 at area of Tectona Grandis
Plantation in Blora Districts. The research was use double ring infiltrometer to measure soil
infiltration with three replication on each distance from Biohole and use electrolit conductivity
meter (EC) to measure soil fertility by salt ion consentration and soil acidity. The measurement
was done in every five minute and observtian periode every fifteen days along forty five days.
The result of research show that the highest of infiltration rate, infiltration capacity ,
fertility & acidity was happened on soil with involve Biofertilizer MA-11, ie 17-28 cm/hour, 325 – 691 uS/cm, PH = 6- 7 While the lowest of infiltration rate, infiltration capacity , fertility &
acidity was happened on soil without involve Alfaafa Microba MA-11, ie 17- 22 cm/hour, 325 –
350 uS/cm , PH 5 – 6,5.
