The objective of the research is to found dose of tithonia and interval of application time to increased growth and production of sallot. This research was conducted in Tanjung Anom, Medan Sunggal with altitude ± 25 meters above sea surface began from December to Februari 2016 used factorial randomized block design with two factors.
