The study was carried out experiments using a completely randomized design ( CRD ), which consists of 4 treatments each ( 0 , 20 , 30 , and 40 tons of compost of OPEFB/ha ), each repoted 4 times. The results showed that application of compost of oil palm empty fruit bunches at a dose of 30 tones/ha can increase seedling height and diameter weeviloil palm are greater than the without compost and aplication 20 tons compost of OPEFB /ha. The increase of dose compost of OPEFB to 40 tons/ha increased seedling height and weevil diameter greates.
