This research is very important to be done to find out other alternative techniques of onion cultivation and develop community knowledge in the business of onion production in West Nusa Tenggara Province (NTB). The long-term goal of this research is to develop the potential of available local resources. Whereas the specific purpose of this study is that it is hoped that this research product can help improve the production of shallots on the island of Lombok and make the community able to explore organic local resources that are useful for agriculture. This study aims to determine the response of the growth of shallots given the combination formula of Bioactivator and liquid organic hyacinth fermented Trichoderma sp. This research was carried out in Sakra Village, East Lombok Regency. The research method used is an experimental method with experiments in the field. This study was designed using a single factor randomized block design (RBD) with 12 levels and 3 replications to obtain 36 experimental units. The collected data were analyzed using Regression analysis test. The results of the data analysis showed that the dose of 55 ml / liter is the best dose with the largest b value of 4.00 in the weight of fresh tuber parameter, supported also by the estimated value which is always positive and the P-value <0.05 and R Square tends to ≥ 80%, so it can be concluded that this product is very well used in the practice of onion cultivation on the island of Lombok.
