Decrease in land productivity is due to land fertility degradation caused by the excessive use of chemical fertilizer. Besides that, scarcity of necessary fertilizer at the farmerâ€™s level causes farmers to have difficulties in finding fertilizer, and the price of chemical fertilizer tends to continuously increase along with the decrease of subsidized fertilizer from the government. The solution offered by PPUPIK is to provide complete organic fertilizer product that can help to increase plants growth and to improve the health and quality of production yields. The activity aims to instil the entrepreneurship spirit around campus as the manifestation of technology application, to provide people with quality solid and liquid organic fertilizers, and to increase innovations of organic waste utilization technology. The activities take place for eight months in the area of Plantation Agriculture Department of Pangkep State Agriculture Polytechnic Campus.

The results of the activity show an increase in the entrepreneurship spirit among lecturers and students, an increase in the studentâ€™s interest of entrepreneurship from a number of zero to three students through an apprenticeship at PPUPIK location. Innovations increase, so the availability of quality organic fertilizer becomes possible.
