A soil survey was conducted to see the pattern of soil carbon organic in pineapple estate during pineapple growth after rotation with cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) and king grass (Pennisetum purpureum). This research was conducted in PT.GGP, Central Lampung, Indonesia. The soil organic carbon was observed (a) after the harvesting of the rotated crop, (b) before planting of new crop of pineapple, and (c) 4 , 6, 8 months after planting. The soil organic carbon was initially increased after rotation, from 0,96% C in king grass and 1,02% C in cassava, to almost 1,2 % after 4 months, but decreased 1,06 % and 1,1 % C in cassava and king grass after 8 months. The low of soil organic carbon indicated that the fertility of the soil is very low, and the addition of soil organic carbon through crop rotation is not enough for pineapple cultivation. Keywords: pineapple, crop rotation, cassava, king grass, tropical soil
