The experiment held in experimental field of Agriculture Faculty of Riau University began from June 2013 to September 2013, this experiment used group random program in factorial form. The first factor is Vegetable Waste fertilizer in three level of fertilizer, K1 = 94 g/crop (5 ton/ha) K2 = 187 g/crop (10 ton/ha) K3 = 281 g/crop (15 ton/ha). The second factor is NPK Tablets in three level of fertilizer, T1 = 2 tablets/crop T2 = 4 tablets/crop T3 = 6 tablets /crop. The observation parameters are the plantation growth rate (cm), the plantation net-weight (g) in 42 days, the appearance of male flower (HST), the appearance of female flower (HST), the weight per cob (g), and the production per 3m2. Giving vegetable waste compost affects in appearance of male and female flower but does not affect the plantation growth rate, the net-weight of plantation, the weight per cob and the production per plot. Giving NPK Tablets does not affect the plantation growth rate, the net-weight of plantation, the weight per cob and the production per plot.
