Planting medium and leaves samples has taken to laboratory analyzed. Grass quality of Maguwoharjo Stadium has the lowest quality than the others because the shortage of fertilizer condition in planting medium. Consequently, it affected grass growth and performance. Bades on the existing problems, some improvements of planting medium fertility were needed to get the optimal growth and performance in Maguwoharjo Stadium, such as adding the lime and compost or zeolit into planting media to increase the soil pH and CEC (Cation Exchange Capacity).
