This paper describes a mathematical model for a good mixture of fertilizer levels using goal programming technique for oil palm plantations so that the oil palm plants produce high quality fruit. Goal programming used is preemptive goal programming. Computational results indicates that the determination of the optimal the mix of fertilizer using goal programming techniques is very effective because this technique is able to meet any goals expected in the oil palm plantations.
