Abstract: This investigation studied the application of digester effluent from co-digestion of pig manure and spent mushroom substrate as a fertilizer for leaf mustard planting and as feed for Tilapia fish growing. The fish raising experiment was set up in 1 x 1 x 1m hapa conditions (triplicate for each treatment) with the density of 10 individiual per hapa; the fish weight and length were measured every 10 days for 50 continuous days. The leaf mustard was planted in real conditions at farmer’s garden with normal cultivation style, and the weight and length of the plant were measured four times during the growing period. The study result shows that the harvest yield of leaf mustard fertilized by the digester effluent was 5.4 times higher than that by an inorganic fertilizer (IF). In addition to its contribution to a higher yield, the digester effluent accelerated the flower formation and shortened cultivation duration. For Tilapia fish culture, the growing rate of fish in the treatments supplied with 50% digester effluent + 50% commercial food (CF) was not significantly different in comparison to the fish cultivation with 100% CF. The result strongly confirms that the digester effluent from a co-digestion biogas plant of pig dung and spent mushroom compost is possible to be used as an organic fertilizer well for not only vegetable planting but also fish culture.
