Use of Water Hyacinth and Fermented Fruit Waste as BSF (Black Soldier Fly) Media on The Quality of BSF Maggot Flour
This study aims to assess BSF maggot flour’s quality using water hyacinth growing media and fermented
fruit waste using EM-4 and molasses. Held a total of 70 g of baby maggot was in the temple for 15 days.
Eldest the feed used using fermented water hyacinth and fermented fruit waste with four treatments
consist of P0= 0% fermented water hyacinth+ 100% fermented fruit waste, P1= 25% fermented water
hyacinth+ 75% fermented fruit waste, P2= 50% fermented water hyacinth+ 50% fermented fruit waste,
and 75% fermented water hyacinth+ 25% fermented fruit waste. The design of the experiment uses a
completely randomized design (CRD). The results showed that substitution of feeding 25% fermented
water hyacinth+ 75% fermented fruit waste influenced the yield of BSF maggot flour (P <0.05), and there
was no effect on the pH quality of Maggot BSf flour (P> 0.05). The best results’ (substitution of feeding
25% fermented water hyacinth+ 75% fermented fruit waste) has proximate content of dry matter
89%, ash 11%, crude protein 35.5%, crude fat 12%, calcium 7%, nitrogen-free extract material 7%,
metabolist energy 2939.64 kcal/ 100 g.
