Abstract: 

This research was conducted in the Field Laboratory of Agriculture Faculty, Halu Oleo University, District Kambu, Regency of Kendari, Province of Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. The objectives of the research was determined the impact of mycorrhiza fungi and bokashi fertilizer to weed density, growth and yield of maize. The research was conducted in completely randomized block design (CRBD) with factorial pattern and each treatment was repeated three times. The observed variables were weed density, plant height, leaf area, cob length, cob diameter, number of row seed cob-1, seed number cob-1, dry weigth of 100 seeds, harvest index and shoot root ratio. The results showed that the dominance value of weeds at age 14 DAP as such as 96.14%, at the age of 28 DAP as such as 94.99%, at the age of 42 DAP as such as 98.66%, at the age of 56 DAP as such as 88.52%, and at the age of 70 DAP as such as 85.19%. The combination applied of mycorrhiza fungi and bokashi fertilizer has a significant effect on the plant height age 28 DAP, leaf area age 14 and 28 DAP, cob length and diameter, number of row seed cob-1, dry weigth of 100 seeds and shoot root ratio.
