KUANTIFIKASI BIOMASSA PERKEBUNAN KELAPA SAWIT DI LANGKAT, SUMATERA UTARA

Abstract: Quantifying oil palm plantation contribution to global carbon budgets is needed. Biomass variation of oilpalm plantation practices through allolmetric models that can be used to asses oil palm plantation. Theobjectives of this research were to find the biomass variation of oil palm plantation in Langkat, NorthSumatera. The research was done by two steps. Firstly, data collecting was at oil palm plantation. Secondsteps was analys biomass in laboratorium. Measurement of parameters is done by 9 (nine) permanentsample plots (PCP) with line block methode in 5 year, 10 year and 15 year. The size of plots was 20 m x 20m (400 m2) that distanches to another plot was 10 m x 10 m (100 m2) used random sampling. This researchfound that the models of biomass in oil palm plantation was W = 0.00597D1.000Hbp1.142.
Key words: quantifying, destructive sampling, model of biomass, oil palm plantation
