Ultisol is a marginal soil in Indonesia but its minimally utilized for agriculture. It is characteristic the high Al, low pH value and low soil content, so it needs to improve soil conditions. Fly ash and cow manure are materials that can be used for repairing ultisol soil. Fly ash is a coal combustion waste containing nutrients that can be used to improve the soil. Cow manure has a nutrient tha improve soil biological, chemical and physical properties. This study to determine the population of the soil due to the application of fly ash and cow manure on marginal soils. The experiment was conducted using a completely randomized block design in a factorial. The first factor is the dosage level of fly ash and the second factor is the dose of cow manure. The results showed that the use of fly ash and cow manure as soil amendments affected the population of soil microorganisms and soil chemical properties of ultisol. The highest microorganism population was obtained at a dose of fly ash 100 t/ha with a total bacterial population of 7,6x105±1,78 Log CFU /g and a fungal population of 17,8x107±1,29 Log CFU /g. While the doses of cow manure 10, 20, 30 t/ha were not significantly different in the observed variables. The use of fly ash dosage of 150 t/ha increased soil pH to 7.29, N content 0.08%, P 52.36 mg/kg, K 26.48 mg/kg, and Organic C by 1.12%.
