We have conducted a study to determine the P-availability, P-uptake and maize yield on applying granular sago waste compost and phosphate fertilizer to Inceptisol soil. We used a completely randomized factorial design with two factors experimental design. The first factor was fine sago waste compost, and the second factor was phosphate fertilizer (SP-36). This research showed that the sago compost combined with phosphate fertilizer increased soil pH, P-availability in soil and dry grains yield of corn. We also found that the sago compost and phosphate fertilizer individually increased P-uptake by the plant. The best dose of the sago compost was 80 tons.ha-1, and the phosphate fertilizer was 240 kg.ha-1. Phosphate effectively increased dry corn grains yield equals to 7,81 ton ha-1. The findings of this research may serve as material for future researchers or for the farming community.
