The research was done to develop population and approach to grow corn in acid and dry soil condition, with additional treatment of manure and liquid organic fertilizer (LOF). The reasearch involved the Syn-1 and Syn-2 corn populations (V1 , V2) derived from the cross of EWDMR and SA-8 accession. The manure was applied as a chicken manure (CM) of 2.5 ton/ha (K1) and 5.0 ton/ha (1<2) combined with LOF of 20 cell (P1 ), 40 cell (P2) and no aplication (PO). The research was conducted at the farmland area at Pamulutan, Ogan llir, South Sumatera. The research was carried out according to the Factorial Experiment in a RCB design with three replications as blocks in plot size of 3 m x 4 m. Results indicated that growth and production of Syn-1 and Syn-2 populations were affected by the application of organic fertilizer. The effect of the CM, however seemed to be more dominant and the role might not be replaced by the LOF. The application of 5 ton CM/ha, in general resulted in the yield of 2.18 - 3.09 tons of dry seed/ha. Further investigation indicated that the Syn populations showed good stability for many major agronomic traits, responsive, to application of organic fertilizer, and interestingly, the yield potential still tends to increase from Syn-1 to Syn-2.
