Oil-palm tree originated from West Africa where it growing wild and later developed into agricultural crop. Oil-palm plantation was first introduced to Malaya in early 1879's as an ornamental plant. Crop Management System (CMS) is the most important facilities that must be consider in order producing quality oil-palm product. On the other hand, an expert system (ES) is the most powerful approach that simulates human knowledge from an expert in certain domain for assist human to make a decision., This research focusing on development an Expert System (ES) for Oil-palm Disease Control Diagnosis (PEKA-SAWIT) to become as a component of CMS where it will perform a diagnosis process for assigning an infected disease, treatment solution and also the prevention control. Agricultural Officer and planters who involve directly with oil-palm plantation may use this system as an assistant for helping them in managing the crop activities especially in disease control. The proposed system will be accessible through the Internet. For development purposes, Knowledge Engineering Methodology was selected as a guide. Perhaps, this intelligent system may become the most popular alternative for performing and work as an assistant to produce a better quality of oil-palm product.
