The levels is M0 (0 kg /plant), M1 (15 kg /plant), M2 (30 kg /plant) and M3 (45 kg /plant). Parameter observed : calculate the amount of soil biota macrofauna, mesofauna and microorganism. Data were analyzed deskriptively statistically. The research showed application of organic mulch M. bracteata 45 kg/plant increased the amount of soil biota macrofauna, mesofauna and microorganism soil, in the area of disc palm oil.
