The research aimed to describe changing biomass during the burning process, to characterize the nutrient loss due to biomass burning, to analyze the financial loss of nutrient transfer, and to compare income of farmers. This research was conducted in the peatland typologies of B, C and D in Talang Sepucuk, OKI District, South Sumatra. The vegetation and paddy yields was recorded by squares method, i.e. 25 x 25 m at each study site, dried and weighed and analyzed in the laboratory. The nutrient transfer due to biomass burning was in range of US$ 3,844-3,970 ha/year. The income of farmers was very small US$ 829-912 ha/year, it was only about 22 % of the total financial loss of nutrient transfer. The remainingvalue (78 %) isbeyond thecapacityof farmersto harvestthe peatland resources. This value isclassified as one of thebiggest negativeimpactof thesonorsystemto be paidby the all people.
