The sugarcane vinasse is a residue from the sugar-ethanol industry which is high of organic matter and nutrient and it can effect on soil properties, crop growth, and production. The research aims to know on testing the effect of sugarcane vinasse on soil microbiological condition also to know dose range of sugarcane vinasse application to soil microbiological condition. The field experiment was conducted with five sugarcane vinasse doses are 0m3.ha-1, 20m3.ha-1, 40m3.ha-1, 60m3.ha-1, 80m3.ha-1 and established in a Randomized Complete Block Design with five replications. Sugarcane vinasse contains high organic matter and a number of nutrients such as N, P, K and a slightly acidic pH. Application of sugarcane vinasse to the soil is the same when other liquid organic fertilizer applications. The presence of organic matter and nutrients in sugarcane vinasse makes the application of sugarcane vinasse can affect some soil microbiological properties. The obtained data revealed that the application of sugarcane vinasse had significant differences to C/N ratio soil, microbial biomass carbon, and total microorganism.
