The aim of this study was to determine the effect of organic fertilizer (chicken manure, compost and cattle manure) to the growth and productivity of S.membranaceum as one of carbohydrate source. This study used Randomized Block Design with 4 treatments: i.e. control (no organic fertilizer). chicken manure, compost and cattle manure which were applied at 10 tons I ha. Even treatment had 4 replicates. Growth parameter was observed during vegetative phase while weight and forage production were observed at harvest. The result showed that application of 10 tons/ha organic fertilizer did not affect plant height and panicle weight (P>0.05 ), but forage production was affected significantly by organic fertilizer (P< 0.05). Application of manure increased forage production significantly (P<0.05) compared to control and compost treatments. Seed storage of S.membranaceum at 15C, in plastic bag for 2 months did not change seed appearance and germination.
