ABSTRACT- Edamame is a soybean type with a high potential to be developed because it has a high commercial value and great opportunities in the domestic and export markets. Efforts to increase Edamame production must be carried out to meet the market demand. One of the efforts that can be made is to manage soil fertility by utilizing organic waste as fertilizer and ameliorant. Green mussel shells (GMS) are organic waste that is abundantly available and has the potential to be used as organic material to improve soil fertility and increase soil pH. This research aimed to study the effect of GMS powder on the growth and production of Edamame. The research was conducted in two locations from October 2020 to April 2021. The study used Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with a treatment factor of GMS which consisted of five levels, namely inorganic fertilizer (control), 5 g GMS powder (1 ton ha-1) + urea, 10 g GMS powder (2 tons ha-1) + urea, 15 g GMS powder (3 tons ha-1) + urea, and 20 g GMS powder (4 tons ha-1) + urea. The results showed that various doses of GMS powder with urea had the same effect as inorganic fertilizers on the growth and production of Edamame plants on both Oxisol and Ultisol soils. Edamame plants grown on Oxisol soil had better yields than plants grown on Ultisol soil. Results also indicated that GMS can be used as an ameliorant due to its ability to increase soil pH. KEYWORDS: Ameliorant; Oxisol; Ultisol; Vegetable Soybean.
