Abstract: Oil Palm Empty Fruit Bunches (OPEFB) wastes were abundant and became problems. The biochar application would solve the problems due to the great role of biochar as soil amendment. The aim of this study was to investigate the application of OPEFB biochar to enhance the soil fertility and growth of Falcataria molucanna. Biochar was produced by a slow pyrolysis at temperature of 400 C and 600 ℃. Biochar was applied to the six-month F. molucanna trees in the plantation with 3 dosage (0 ton/ha, 5 ton/ha and 10 ton/ha). Growth parameters such as height and diameter increment was observed once a month during six months, while the P- shoot content, soil pH, cation exchange capacity (CEC), C-organic, and P-soil content were taken once at the end of the experiments. The result showed that the growth of F. molucanna was increased by application of OPEFB biochar and significantly different from the control. The application 5 ton/ha of 400 o C OPEFB biochar indicated the best result of the growth parameters. Otherwise, the interaction of pyrolysis temperature and biochar dosage of soil properties affected to the C-organic and P-soil content. Meanwhile, there is no significance different between the temperature and biochar dosage to the soil pH and CEC. o
