Activities of soil enzymes in rooting zones of young cassava plants were evaluated in a cassava plantation in Gunung Batin area, Lampung, Indonesia. Soil samples were collected in triplicates at distances of 0, 10, 20, and 30 cm from the cassava plants main stems 2 to 5.5 months after planting. The activity of acid phosphatase in general decreased with the age of cassava plants until 4.5 months while that of alkaline phosphatase showed no significant changes, and as that of acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase activity significantly increased at 5.5 month observation. The activity of -glucosidase and arylsulfatase at 2 or 2.5 month observations generally lower than those at later observations. Distances from the main stems showed no effect on the activities of acid and alkaline phosphatases. However, the activity of -glucosidase at 3.5-5.5 month observations decreased and that of arylsulfatase slightly increased with distances from the cassava plants main stems.
