Abstract

Fertilization application in farming area is potential to nitrogen loss throughleaching. The objective of this study was to know nitrogen leachingand efficiency rate in sweetcorn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa) plantation in the peatland area.The study was carried out twice in ombrogenous peatland, from dry season to transition period and from transition period to rainy season. Nitrogen leaching was studied using a lysimeter. Mean nitrogen leaching was recorded as many as 5.62 kg N ha-1 or 7.15 % of total nitrogen inputs and the seweetcorn growing in the peatland in Kalampangan, Palangka Raya, Central Kalimantan, was found not efficient
