A lot of sago is disposed off along the processing of sago palm. Unfortunately, the current process employed to dispose off sago waste is inefficient and often failed to remove the abundance of sago waste. Composting is proposed as an effective method for a variety of processing organic byproducts for application as soil conditioners and amendments. It is to improve the soil fertility to produce a good quality plants and improve its stability and maturity. The preparation of compost was done by a mixture of sago waste, chicken manure and woodchips in a ratio 1: I : 1. After 2 months of composting, the color was dark brown, earthy smell with a constant temperature of 29°C. Compost indicates it contain sufficient moisture content and total organic matter which available for microbial growth. Total N:P:K present in compost with a ratio 0.96:0.39:0.68 results that soil contain a good nutrient content which are not toxicity towards plant yet they can grow well in a sufficient amOlmt of nutrient to water spinach and green mustard.
