Abstract

This research was conducted on andosol soils, especially for coffee 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 2018 at area of coffee plantation in
Boyolali 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 86-91 cm/hour, 325 – 970 uS/cm, PH =
5,25- 6. While the lowest of infiltration rate, infiltration capacity , fertility & acidity was
happened on soil without involve Alfaafa Microba MA-11, ie 84- 86 cm/hour, 325 – 535 uS/cm
, PH 5 – 5,75.
