An experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of grow enhancer on duck egg production in Langowan region, Minahasa, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Total of respondents were 33 duck farmers and experimental design was perform using grow enhancer. There were two groups (treated and untreated duck). The result showed the egg productions volume of two groups were different. The treated ducks with “grow enhancer” in their feed showed 2 times increasing of egg production compare to the untreated fed ducks. There were significant differences (P<0.05) in egg production when used grow enhancer than without grow enhancer. The study indicates that there are great potentials for increasing the duck egg production in Langowan of Indonesia through modified formula of feeding (with grow enhancer) for ducks.
