The purpose of this study was to determine the Utilization of Palm Oil Mill Effluent on plantation land. Samples of wastewater coming from an outlet of Wastewater Treatment Plant channeled through a pipe leading to the Land Application. The results showed that almost no significant changes from the first semester and second semester on soil porosity with an average of 47, 72% and 51, 36%, so that there was no change in the physical properties of the soil due to the utilization of palm oil wastewater on the soil. The high value of P-available in the rorac and between-rorac (0-20 cm and 20-40 cm, even> 40 cm), because the palm oil waste water that is given contains the element P. Furthermore, Ca-dd, Mg-dd, and Na-dd values in the soil fluctuate, especially in the control location. Soil fertility is increasing after palm oil waste water is applied to oil palm plantations.
