Agroforestry area of Pamoop District Amphur Lablae Uttaradit province is the plantation with Durian Langsan and Wollongong. There are a lot of fallen leaves and grass weed caused by cutting. Almost cost of agricultural production were fertilizer insecticide and labor cost. The fallen leaves and grass weed in agroforestry can be used to make compost. This research was study by participatory action research that objective to find the compost production pattern and suitable properties of composting from fallen leaves and grass weed. The research methods included experiment study, interviews, observations and group discussions to find the general situation, community content, technology adoption and take it advantage from farmer groups in the area.The experiment was conducted by composting from the mixture of 4 formulas with period of time 45 days and 60 days. The result showed that compost formula with weeds and leaves: animal dung: bio extract was most appropriate. The farmer group selected pile on the ground pattern for using in the area that suitable pattern because convenient and labor saving. The farmers can use fallen leaves and weeds to produce compost about 300 kg per rai. The compost utilization can be used durian seedlings and supplement durian tree after harvest for reduce costs.
