Peat soil in tropical area is characterized as marginal or infertile soil. In Indoneia, the majority of them have sulphidic materials as substratum. The disappearance or depletion of peat layer may lead to the changes in environmental condition and quality due to increasing of peat material oxidation, moreover sulfidic material as subtratum mineral of peatlands may oxidized when contact with oxygen. This paper aims at reviewing the contribute of peat layer on contentration of phosphate (P), nitrogen (N), iron (Fe) and aluminium (Al) in...
