Sorghum is one type of cereal plants that have great potential to be developed in Indonesia. But there is still a lot of cultivation of sorghum planted on marginal land, efforts to increase the productivity of sorghum can not only rely on the results planted on marginal land only, for it needs to have the addition of nutrients in the form of potassium in improving the productivity of sorghum plant. The K element which is dynamic so easily washed needs to be added in the form of a KCl compound. This study aims to determine the effect of KCl compounds and the effective concentration of KCl compounds on the growth of sorghum sprouts. This study was conducted November- December 2017 at the Botanical Laboratory of Biology Department Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences University of Lampung. This study uses a Completely Randomized Design with 5 levels of concentration as treatment: 0% (control), 10%, 20%, 30%, and 40%. The variables observed were plant height, plant dry weight, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and total chlorophyll. Data obtained in homogeneity with lavenne test after homogeneous in analysis with analysis of variance (ANARA) at α 5% if there is real difference then will be tested continued with test of real difference honest (BNJ) at α 5%. The results showed that KCl compound had an effect on the growth of sorghum plant, the effect that was visible only on the variables of shoot root ratio while other variables gave the same effect. And there is an effective KCl compound that is at 10% concentration that is clearly visible on the ratio of root buds of sorghum.
