Soil sampling and soil macrofauna carried out in area 50 x 50 cm with depth 15 cm. The samples were taken around the plant samples (1 meter from the base of plant) and between plants (at rows). The method to collect of soil macrofauna by hand sortir method. Rubber plantations aged 6 years and 4 years have the same kind that are braid (Geophilomorpha), ants (Hymenoptera) and ground beetles (Coleoptera).
