The oil palm husk ash is one of the Amelioren in the soil because it has complete micro and macro nutrient elements. The oil palm husk ash is made of the solid waste from the process of inicinerator of the oil palm husk. The oil palm husk ash contains of 30-40% K2O, 7%, 9% Cao, and 3% MgO.Besides, it contains 1.200 ppm Fe, 1,00 ppm Mn, 400ppm Zn and 100ppm Cu. The purpose of granting this oil palm husk as is to know its optimum dosages for the ground and of yield peanuts. This study used the randomized group design, with treatment as follows; A0 = without oli palm husk ash; A1= with oil palm husk ash 600kg/ha (120g/plot), A2= 900kg/ha (180g/plot), A3= 1200kg/ha (240g/plot), and A4 =1500kg/ha (300g/plot). The result of the analysis of variance shows that this treatment has real effects of various to the weight of peanut and the peanuts per plot. The highest result is shown in A4 = dosages of 1500kg/ha (300g/plot) with total production of 56.00g. Peanuts are also produced from A4 =dosis 1500kg/ha (300g/plot) with total of 23,15 g. Meanwhile, production of the weight of peanuts per plot from treatment A3 dosages 1200kg/ha (240g/plot) with total of 635,75g. Itis different from the treatment A0 with total of 360,75g. This becouse the nutrients elements contain in the palm husk ash gives optimum nutrients to the plant of ground peanuts. And the most contained element in oil palm husk ash is Kalium (30-40%). The results of this study shows that to obtain the optimum result in planting peanut, it is suggested to take dose of 1200kg/ha (240g/plot) oil palm husk ash to get maximum nutrient in the soil.
