Effects of Indigenous Microorganisms (IMO) 7 on the Growth and Yield of Sweet Corn Sugar King F1 Variety–Peanut Intercropping System in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines

Jeffrey P. Villaver and Oliver E. Borres

Indigenous microorganism (IMO) 7 is an organic fertilizer produced from a series of fermentation to make the nutrients more available to plants. This study was conducted to determine the effects of IMO 7 on the growth and yield of sweet corn 'Sugar King F1' variety–peanut intercropping system in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines. The study was laid out using four treatments with four replicates. The data were analyzed using the General Linear Model ANOVA, and treatment differences were determined using Tukey?s test or HSD in IBM SPSS version 21. Results showed significant growth and yield increase in sweet corn and peanut with the application of IMO 7. Treatment 4 (15 tons of IMO 7 per ha.) produced the highest plant height in sweet corn and peanut. Ear height was highest, and tassel and silk formation came earlier in sweet corn with Treatment 4. Yield components and projected yield of sweet corn and peanut also increased significantly with Treatment 4. Results suggest that IMO 7 at a total of 30 tons per hectare is suitable for the sweet corn-peanut intercropping system in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur.
