Riau Province in each year the area of oil palm plantations is expanding, making Riau Province a mainstay center for oil palm plantations in Indonesia. With the increase in oil palm plantations, there will also be an increase in the need for fertilizer to meet the nutrients from the oil palm. Artificial fertilizers (inorganic) are currently very rare and difficult to find and the price is quite expensive. For this reason, another alternative to the problem of scarcity of fertilizers, farmers can use organic fertilizers instead. Materials such as leaf compost, forage compost and animal manure can be used as organic fertilizer. Chicken manure is one of the animal wastes that has the potential to be used as organic fertilizer because it contains high levels of nutrients. For a livestock population of 10,000 chickens, chicken manure will produce up to ± 800 kg per week. The problem is that this chicken manure has not been managed properly, due to the absence of science and technology to process the chicken manure into quality organic fertilizer, so that it becomes one of the business opportunities to increase income in the community. To encourage this, an effort is made through counseling for SMK N 01 Kuok students, so that they can increase the knowledge they can apply later, so that they can also increase the economy and income or even if there are students who want to start entrepreneurship from an early age. By conducting this counseling, the resource person hopes that farmers will no longer experience difficulties in obtaining quality organic fertilizer at affordable prices.
