This study examined the relationship between soil properties, especially pH and C-organic soil with the incidence of heart rot disease due to phythophthora in pineapple plantation. The heart rot disease which was caused by Phytophthora sp. was studied in small scale plot experiment. To simulate the amount of C-organic in soil as well as pH, the experiment was done by applying compost with the following treatments: 0 t/ha, 100 t/ha, and 200 t/ha of compost with 5 replicate. Three months after planting, the incidence of disease was very severe in application of 200 t compost per ha, and all the plants were nearly dead 5 months after planting in 100 and 200 t/ha of compost application. Application of compost increased C-organic soil and soil pH in, especially treatment 200 t/ha followed by the increasing disease incidence due to phythophthora. The species of Phytophthora sp was identified as Phytophthora nicotianae. Keywords: pineapple, compost, heart rot disease, phytophthora
