Abstract: This study aims to compare the effectiveness of the effect of giving soil amelior (bioamelioran) and organic matter at various concentrations to cocoa seed germination. This research was conducted in the experimental plantations of the Department of Plantation Plantations conducted in April - August 2019. The method used in this study was a Randomized Block Design (RBD), which consisted of four treatments of bioameliorant concentrations namely K0 = No Bioameliorant, K1 = 3 ml / L water, K2 = 4 ml / L water, K3 = 5 ml / L water. The treatment of giving organic material is done evenly with the same dose of 30 tons / ha equivalent to 53 grams / polybag. The treatment was repeated three times so that the total treatment unit was 24. The results showed that the K3 treatment with ml / L concentration of water showed the highest plant height (23.83 cm) and the highest number of leaves was 12 leaves.
