Abstract

Weed in the agriculture field is needed to reduce. So It is need something environmentally tool to conserve agriculture. One promising uses Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae. The larvae capability to consume some weeds were presented. Descriptive research was conducted by investigating the role of BSF on some weeds i.e ki rinyuh (Chromolaena odorata), Babadotan (Ageratum conyzoides), rumput gajah (Pennisetum purpreum). Each was given BSF larvae with 150 g, 200 gr and 250 gr of weight on 500 gr weed, The result showed that BSF larvae at 150 g of weight convert weed between 80- 100%, on 200 mg convert 75 % – 97 %, on 250 mg can convert 80 % -100 % in four day. The mortality of BSF larvae on Chromolaena odorata was 10 %, Ageratum conyzoides was 6 %, Pennisetum purpreum was 0 %. This showed BSF larvae can be converted weed into BSFlarvae biomass.
