The aim of this research was to determine the effect of different levels of Potassium Phosphate (KH2PO4) fertilizer on nutrient uptake of rice under saline conditions. This research was arranged in a factorial randomized block design with two factors, i.e.: Variety and KH2PO4 fertilizer concentration with 3 replications. Eight rice varieties used were Ciherang, IR 64, Lambur, Batanghari, Banyuasin, IR 42, Inpara 10 and Margasari. Four levels of KH2PO4 concentration were 0, 50, 100 and 150 mg/l. Results showed that Potassium Phosphate application was alleviated the stress condition and significantly affected nutrient uptake in rice. Potassium Phosphate fertilizer applications through the leaves with a concentration of 150 mg/l (P3) gives the best results for all variables observed. Banyuasin had the better growth in saline soil than other varieties.
