Tomatoes have many benefits and contain vitamins that are very important for the human body. Decreased tomato productivity can be caused by low soil fertility. One way to increase the productivity of tomato plants is by adding mulch. Mulch is an ingredient that is spread on the ground to suppress water loss and weed growth. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of kepok banana mulch on the growth of tomato plants (Lycopersicum esculentum Mill.). The study was conducted using a completely randomized design (CRD) with 6 treatments of banana leaf mulch and 4 replications. The banana mulch treatments are P0 = 0 gr / plant (Control), P1 = 30 gr / plant, P2 = 40 gr / plant, P3 = 50 gr / plant, P4 = 60 gr / plant, P5 = 70 gr / plant. The variables observed were the number of leaves, plant height, stem diameter, dry weight, and root length. The data obtained were homogenized by the Levene test, followed by an analysis of variance at = 5%, and further tested for the Least Significant Difference (LSD) at α = 5%.The results of this study indicate that the higher Kepok banana leaf mulch treatment had a significant effect on the inhibition of plant height, number of leaves, dry weight and root length of tomato plants.s Keywords: banana, leaves, mulch, tomatoes.
