Vegetative growth and artemisinin constituent may be stimulated by the application of nitrogen and cytokinin. This study aimed to determine the response of nitrogen fertilizer dosage and time of cytokinin applicationon growth and yield of Artemisia annua L. The research was undertaken at Kelobak Village, Kepahiang Regency,Bengkulu, from April to September 2009. The experiment used a Randomized Complete Block Design arrangedfactorially. The first factor was nitrogen fertilizer dosage, consisting of 0, 50, and 100 kg ha-1; and the second onewas time of cytokinin application, comprising 3, 6, 9 week after planting. Each treatment combination wasreplicated three times. Data were analyzed by analysis of variance and means were separated by orthogonalpolynomial. Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) was employed to trace artemisinin content of leaf. The resultsindicated that there was an interaction between nitrogen fertilizer dosage and time of cytokinin application onplant height and stem diameter. Nitrogen fertilizer dosage influenced both fresh weight and dry weight of upperplant part. Time of cytokinin application did not affect all observed variables. Nitrogen fertilization 60.27 and62.49 kg ha-1 together with cytokinin application time 3 week after planting yielded both the highest plant height(102.23 cm) and the biggetst stem diameter (22.21 mm). Nitrogen fertilizer dosage 100 kg ha-1 resulted in heaviestfresh and dry weight of upper plant part, namely 421.23 g and 39.25 g, consecutively. Artemisinin was detectedin leaf.

Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mendapatkan dosis pupuk nitrogen dan waktu pemberiansitokinin terhadap pertumbuhan dan hasil Artemisia annua L. Penelitian dilaksanakan di Desa Kelobak, KabupatenKepahiang, Provinsi Bengkulu mulai bulan April sampai bulan September 2009. Percobaan menggunakanRancangan Acak Kelompok Lengkap yang disusun secara faktorial. Faktor pertama adalah dosis pupuk nitrogenyang terdiri dari 0, 50, dan 100 kg ha-1; dan faktor kedua adalah waktu pemberian sitokinin yang terdiri dari 3, 6,dan 9 minggu setelah tanam. Setiap kombinasi perlakuan diulang sebanyak tiga kali. Data dianalisis dengananalisis sidik ragam dan rata-rata dipisahkan dengan orthogonal polinomial. Untuk melacak keberadaan senyawaartemisinin digunakan Kromatografi Lapis Tipis (KLT). Hasil menunjukkan terdapat interaksi antara dosis pupuknitrogen dengan waktu pemberian sitokinin terhadap tinggi tanaman dan diameter batang. Pupuk nitrogenberpengaruh terhadap bobot segar dan bobot kering bagian atas tanaman. Waktu pemberian sitokinin tidakmemengaruhi semua parameter yang diamati. Pupuk nitrogen masing-masing 60,27 dan 62,49 kg ha-1 denganpemberian sitokinin tiga minggu setelah tanam berturut-turut menghasilkan tanaman tertinggi (102,23 cm) dandiameter batang terbesar (22,21 mm). Dosis pupuk nitrogen 100 kg ha-1 menghasilkan bobot segar dan bobotkering bagian atas tanaman, masing-masing 421,23 g dan 39,25 g. Artemisinin terdeteksi dalam daun tanamanArtemisia.

Completechemical (de novo) synthesis of artemisinin was Malaria is a global health issue that will achieved by several research groups (Avery et continue to spread with the increase in mosquito al., 1992). The procedures require several steps, and can start from different raw materials. A temperatures. Malaria is a major health problem comprehensive review on the chemistry, synthesis in many parts of the world, especially Africa, South and semisynthesis of artemisinin has been America and Southeast Asia. Between 300 and conducted. However, low yield, complexity and 500 million people are currently infected with high cost indicate that the isolation of artemisinin malaria, with more than two billion at risk for from the plant is the most economically feasible infection. Experts project a continued increase in method for its production at present (Zipper et these numbers. Two million people die annually from malaria, including one million children. In Artemisinin is the raw material needed to Indonesia, 56.3 million people out of 70.0 million population living in endemic areas are at high risk dihydroartemisinin, arteether, artemether and of malaria. In 2003, malaria spread out in 30 artesunate. The flowering stimulus appears to be Provinces covering 6,053 villages in which the perceived at the apical meristem, and that highest mortality rate went to under five-year flowering could be somewhat delayed by pinching children (Depkes, 2007; Gunawan 2000). Latest the apical meristems and providing nitrogen report indicated that there are 424 regencies as fertilization. Very little published work exists on malarial endemic regions. Malaria is an infectious the vegetative growth responses of A. annua to the specific macronutrients nitrogen, phosphorus predicament due to ineffective medication against resistant strain of Plasmodium parasite. Cerebral malaria, caused by Plasmodium falciparum, is compounds (Ferreira and Janick, 1995).

The dry matter (1–3 ton ha-1) was obtained in available drug, however, is slow acting, and Mississippi, USA, where a complete fertilizer resistance to chloroquine and other currently used mixture containing 100 kg N, 100 kg P and 100 kg antimalarial drugs is widespread and increasing.

Similarly in Tasmania, Australia, annua (family Asteraceae), which is used as an dry leaf yields of 6–12 ton ha-1 were obtained in antimalarial in traditional Chinese medicine, has experiments with a mixed fertilizer containing 60 been found effective as an antimalarial drug kg N, 60 kg P and 50 kg K ha-1 pre-drilled in bands 150 mm apart and about 50mm below seed and In the intact A. annua plant, artemisinin 75mm below transplants (Laughlin et al., 2002).

In peak in artemisinin before flowering and at the addition to a lactone group, artemisinin contains end of vegetative growth, allowing maximal an endoperoxide bridge, which is rarely found in biomass accumulation of artemisinin before secondary metabolites, and is responsible for the Akta Agrosia Vol. 13 No. 1 hlm 77 - 81 Jan - Jun 2010 Table 1.

Constitutive expression of the ipt genein A. annua was tested to gain a better understanding of the relationship between chlorophyll and cytokinins, and cytokinin function in growth, development, and production of artemisinin. This work suggested a direct correlation between shoot growth (chlorophyll content), cytokinins, and artemisinin (Sa et al., 2001; Pamela et al., 2006). The increase in plant growth with the addition of cytokinin canbe explained by the hormone’s ability to trigger growth factors and activate the defense pathway within the plant. Because of this, one of the Results indicated there was an interaction immediate effects of cytokinin treatment on A. between nitrogen fertilizer dosage and time of annua is an increase in shoot growth and height.

This research has been supported by increase (19%) in total fresh plant biomass, the Office of Research and Development for cultivated in densities varying from 27.8 to 111.1 thousand plants/ha, was reported with the addition of 67 kg ha-1 N, but the artemisinin concentrationwas not reported, and the total fresh plant biomass REFERNCES
