The research of Tithonia diversifolia utilization in the paddy soil that was fertilized P-starter on yield and N, P, K uptake on rice crop, has been conducted from August to December 2005. The objective of this research was to determine an interaction between P-starter levels, and tithonia levels on production and N, P, K element uptake of rice crop. The research was pot experiment in the green house in factorial design 4 x 4. First factor was 4 levels of tithonia with reduce dosage fertilizer applied (T0 = 0 t ha-1 of tithonia + 200 kg ha-1 of urea + 75 kg ha-1 of KCl ; T1= 2,5 t ha-1 of tithonia+ 150 kg ha-1 of urea , without KCl; T2 = 5,0 ton ha-1 of tithonia+ 100 kg ha-1 of urea , without KCl; dan T3 = 7,5 t ha-1 of tithonia + 50 kg ha-1 of urea, without KCl). The second factor was 4 levels of P-starter (0, 2, 4, and 6 kg P ha-1). The result showed that combination of T3 treatment and 2-4 kg P-starter ha-1 increased the grain yield 20,51-21,08 g pot-1 (18,65-19,21 %). Effect of T3 treatment was not significantly differences with T2 treatment on the grain yield. The best interaction was T3 treatment on N and K uptake (0,84 g pot-1 for N, dan 0,82 g pot-1 for K).
