(Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) is a significant international pest and the most devastating pest throughout the world of beeswax. Natural pesticides must be replaced with synthetic materials since they are more ecologically friendly. This study aims to determine alternative methods of controlling the larger wax moth by assessing the efficacy of several plant-based biocides for this purpose various ethanolic plant extracts such as rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L), Clove (Syzygium aromaticum), Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus sp) and Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) where used with four extraction rates (5,10,15 and 20) against the late instar larvae of Galleria mellonella in vitro after 24,48 and 72 hr. Obtained results revealed that the pupal mortality increased when the concentration increased and the highest accumulative mortality percentage of wax moth larvae during the experiment, it was demonstrated that all studied plants were efficient at suppressing Galleria mellonella larvae. The result shows that three days after application treatment of rosemary 20% gave the maximum total mortality percentage (%100) followed by (%96.58, %92.66 and %64.86) for Eucalyptus, Cinnamon and clove after 24,48 and 72 hr. respectively. It may be suggested that spraying natural products is a good option on new wax combs to protect them against infestation by wax moth larvae</em></p> Shalaw Abdalrahman Omer Ibrahim Majeed Faraj Nask Muhamad Faraj Copyright (c) 2023 Shalaw Abdalrahman Omer, Ibrahim Majeed Faraj, Nask Muhamad Faraj 2023-03-28 2023-03-28 6 2 78 88 10.55173/agriscience.v6i2.88 Effectiveness Of Community Program Implementation For Food Business Development Among Rice Producer (Case Study In Gapoktan Mutual Cooperationvillage, Pertapan Maduretno Sidoarjo District Park) <p>The People's Food Business Development Activity (CFBD) is one of the government's efforts to maintain price stability at the level of farmers, producers and consumers.

Treated with Soil Application of Humic Acid under Different Cultivation Periods <p>The demand of organic cultivation of plants is increasing and soil application of organic fertilizer reduces the hazardous usage of inorganic fertilizer and Humic acid is an organic compound derived from plant and animal residues and microbial cells with long-term physical, chemical, and biological processes. In addition, ultivation of soybean in Kurdistan region is not in a wide value therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the impact of soil application of different rates of Humic acid as an organic fertilizer on the growth characteristic of soybean cultivated and determining the best cultivation period for soybean growth. The experiment was conducted in randomized complete block design with two factor treatments and 3 replication, the first factor was one dose soil application of four different Humic Acid rates (HAR) which were (0 (control), 2,4,6,8 g/L) and two cultivation period (CP) which were cultivation Period 1 (CP1) on 15 May 2022 and cultivation Period 2 (CP2) on 1<sup>st</sup> of June 2022. Observations were made against the growth parameters of plant height number of branches, leaf area, root length, shoot fresh weight and shoot dry weight. The effect of soil application of humic acid rates (HAR) was highly significant on the plant height and root length and significant on the No. of branches, shoot fresh and dry weight. While, cultivation period insignificantly affected the growth parameter except for leaf area. was significant. The maximum plant height, number of branches, leaf area, root length, shoot fresh and dry weight were observed with soil application of 8 g/L of humic acid which were (82.83 (cm), 23.33, 8815 (mm<sup>2</sup>), 68.83 (cm), 503.33 (g) and 190.00 (g) respectively. The highest plant height (72 cm), number of branches (18.87), leaf area (7714 mm<sup>2</sup>), root length (57.13 g), shoot fresh (263.67 g) and dry weight (102.93 g) were observed when the planted cultivated in 1st period (CP1) compared to CP2.</p> Chnar Hama Noori Meerza Shara Salih Ali Copyright (c) 2023 Chnar Hama Noori Meerza , Shara Salih Ali 2023-03-28 2023-03-28 6 2 125 134 10.55173/agriscience.v6i2.96 Analysis of Red Onion Hydroponic Cultivation Case Study at Fresh Hydroponic MSMEs <p>The purpose of the study is to find out the process of cultivating shallots using hydroponic techniques.

Increasing the yield of garlic with balanced fertilization is an important key identified, also the right type and dose of fertilization is also a major problem. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of inorganic fertilizer (nitrogen) and chicken manure doses on the growth and yield of garlic. The experimental design used in this research was a completely randomized design. The first factor was chicken manure, which consists of two levels, i.e., without chicken manure and 40 t/ha of chicken manure. The second factor was the dosage of N fertilizer which consists of twenty levels, ie, no fertilizer, urea with a dose of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400. 450, 500 kg/ha, ZA with a dose of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400. 450, 500 kg/ha. The results showed that the combination of urea fertilizer 500 kg/ha and chicken manure 40 tons/ha gave the highest yield of stored dry tubers and was significantly higher than control plots and other treatment combinations. Likewise other growth and yield parameters increased progressively. Therefore, it can be concluded that to increase the yield of garlic in the study area, 500 kg/ha of urea fertilizer and 40 tons/ha of chicken manure are needed. The recommendation is that on Andisol soil for garlic cultivation, it is better to use a combination of 500 kg/ha urea and 40 t/ha chicken manure.</p> Dicky Nursasi Achmad Fatchul Aziez Tyas Sumarah Kurnia Dewi Ongko Cahyono Copyright (c) 2023 Dicky Nursasi, Achmad Fatchul Aziez, Tyas Sumarah Kurnia Dewi, Ongko Cahyono 2023-03-28 2023-03-28 6 2 162 173 10.55173/agriscience.v6i2.104
