Effective microorganism (EM) is microbial inoculants that can promote to the growth performances of plant and in other ways can enhance the soil fertility. This study was conducted to know the effectiveness of EM that contains Lactobacillus casei for growth performance of rice that has been planted in Greenhouse at UiTM Jasin in complete randomized design (CRD) based on 4 treatments and 4 replications. The rice variety that has been used for this study is MR 219 from MARD1 which is the popular variety among farmers in Malaysia especially at the granary area. Lactobacillus casei is one of the probiotic bacteria that contains in Yakult. EM that has been produced should be applying at the rice between one until two weeks after made the EM. This is because EM condition that have bad odour may have poor effectiveness towards the sample that have been study. The four types of treatments used in this experiment which are; (1) treatment without EM applications or control. (2) treatment with 100ml of EM. (3) treatment with 300ml of EM and (4) treatment with 500ml of EM. It involved 16 samples of rice plants (MR219) that have been planted in the pots. This study shows that treatment with 300ml of EM (Lactobacillus casei) give more positive result according to three data that we collect which are, average of plant height, average of number of tillers, and average of number of grains per panicles. The results indicated that the accurate amount of EM concentration that has been applied at rice can enhance the growth performance of rice (MR219).
