Mustard high-yield plantation are mostly supported by utilization of inorganic fertilizer. However, this could
increase soil acidity and give negative impact to the environment. Biochar, a soil amendment, has potential as
a valuable tool for the agricultural with ability to help build soil, conserve water, and sequester carbon. Further,
biochar could be as well combined with biofertilizer to increase soil nutrient. This study aims to understand the
influence of combining biochar with biofertilizer on mustard yield plantation..Ten groups of combination was
carried out on this study namely P1: without fertilizer (control), P2:biochar, P3:NPK, P4:biochar + bacteria,
P5:biochar + mycorrhizal, P6:biochar + NPK, P7:biochar + bacteria + NPK, P8:biochar + mycorrhizal + NPK,
P9:biochar + mycorrhizal + bacteria, P10:biochar + bacteria + mycorrhizal + NPK. The addition of biochar on
biofertilizer showed significantly increasing of mustard biomass and yield by 6,85 gram and 12015 kg/ha
