Abstract

Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is an important commodity in Indonesia, as an export ingredient and food crop which in some regions is used as a staple food. The distribution of cassava plants is very wide mainly due to the ability of this plant to adapt to different climates and soil conditions. Plant growth is largely determined by internal factors such as hormones, water balance and genetics, as well as external factors such as climate, temperature and soil nutrients. Soil nutrients are an important component in plant metabolism. This research aims to determine the nutrient content of the soil where cassava plants grow in Kuta Cot Glie, Aceh Besar. This research was carried out in two stages, the first stage was taking soil samples in the cassava root area using the composite method, and the second stage was laboratory analysis including the physical and chemical properties of the soil. The results of laboratory analysis showed that the cassava root soil had a dusty clay texture, had moderate organic C content (1,26%) and low total N (0,18%), pH was relatively neutral (6,81). Available P is classified as low (4,20 mg kg-1), while exchangeable K is classified as very high (1,46 cmol kg-1).
