Weeds are the plant that easily grows at any circumstances. The present of maximum population weeds in crop plantation may decrease the quality and may stunt the production growth of crops especially in oil palm plantation. It might also give an impact to the environment, biodiversity and ecosystems. A study of weed diversity in oil palm plantation was assessed in term of species richness, dominance and carbon stock from the plot at different types of soils will be conducted. This study was conducted at Gedong, Serian, Sarawak. The different measurement based on the species richness, species dominance and determination of carbon stock in the experiment will be determined. Data showed that species richness from peat soils contained the highest value of species richness H'= 2.1609 among the mineral and alluvial soils. Furthermore, for carbon stock, the data indicated that the highest carbon stock and complexity was 4.522tonnelha in mineral soils whereas weeds in alluvial soils showed the lowest carbon stock which is 3.10Otonnelha.
