Abstract

The site for this experiment was conducted at Ladang ESPEK Risda Durian Mas, Dungun, Terengganu. The biggest reason why I'm doing on that farm is because they have a very systematic integrated farming which much or less affects my research. The objective of this experiment was to compare the organic matter and nutrient level on non-grazing and grazing area. Theoretically, grazing area should have high value of organic matter. But based on the experiments, non-grazing area and constant area have the highest value of organic matter (7.2053) and (6.4513) respectively. The nutrient level stored in the soil also been proved by testing on the lab. Nitrogen and Potassium has the highest concentration stored in soil (41 mg/I) and (86.3) respectively. The pH level also showed that the area that implemented a cattle integration can affects the acidity of soil. At grazing area the high pH recorded was (4.00) and for non-grazing and constant farm, both of them were recorded to have (4.16) and (4.21) respectively. The cattle integration also plays a part in determination of soil moisture. The water content recorded in both non-grazing and constant farm was (52.28%) and (55.85%). This showed that the porosity at non-grazing and grazing area was high compared to grazing area. This is due to the implementation of cattle integration on that farm. The cattle eventually trampled the soil and compact the soil even harder.
