The current formulations of mycorrhizal biofertilizers are of low quality, have not utilized local waste raw materials, have low ability to inoculate, have low contact area with plant roots, and have low inter-ion bonds, making it difficult to attach to roots and easily separated from roots, thereby slowing growth, infection process and short shelf life. This study aims to make arbuscular mycorrhizal fertilizer formulations into powder using coconut charcoal as a raw material for the manufacture of biofertilizers that are easily available, long-lasting, and of good quality. The experiments were conducted in greenhouses and agricultural microbiology laboratories, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Mataram, Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Parameters measured were moisture content, number of spores per 20 g of powder, colonization percentage and shelf life.The resulting arbuscular mycorrhizal biofertilizer powder formulation has high quality inoculum potential, high number of spores and colonization. This product is suitable for farmers because the technology is simple, easy to manufacture, and can be used to increase crop production on marginal land.
