EFFECT OF POWDER AND LIQUID PREPARATIONS OF PROBIOTICS ON WHITE SHRIMP (Litopenaeus vannamei) GROWTH PERFORMANCE
Application of powder and liquid probiotics for growth of white shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei) has been done in Minaloka Jaya shrimp ponds which in Grabag of Purworejo, Province of Central Java. The purpose of this research was to evaluate powder and liquid probiotics toward white shrimp growth performance. Probiotics used in this research were commercial liquid probiotic, powder probiotic and liquid probiotic each of which spread over 150,000 vanname shrimps. The research used Randomized Block Design with three treatments and five repetitions. Data were analyzed using analysis of variance with 95% confidence level and Duncan’s Multiple Range Test. Growth of performance was evaluated by specific growth rate (SGR), body length absolute, absolute biomass and feed conversion ratio (FCR). The research results showed that application of probiotics in powder and liquid preparations could increased growth yield. Powder probiotics showed the best results with specific growth rate of 8.18%, body length absolute of 9.68 cm and absolute biomass of 6.78 g, and feed conversion ratio of 1.93.
