This research aimed to analyze the readiness of oil palm farmer households in the context of mitigating potential economic problems during the oil palm replanting period. This research used a qualitative approach. The method used is a combination of field experiments and surveys using the Community Based Participatory Action Research (CB-PAR) approach. Participants were oil palm farmers in Dataran Kempas Village. Data collection used a questionnaire, and interviews and observations were carried out to strengthen the analysis of the questionnaire results. Analysis of the questionnaire data used descriptive analysis. Data triangulation was used to validate the research result. The research results showed mitigation ofpotential economic problems, especially the decline or loss of family income during the oil palm replanting period. Most farmers do not have a side income other than oil palm. Some farmers also stated that they are ready to carry out the oil palm replanting process, but they still have potential problems with funding sources if they do it independently. Community empowerment programs and strengthening business groups need to be carried out through collaboration with the government, universities, and companies. This program will impact the availability of job opportunities, increase village economic activity, and increase BUMDES activities. Other benefits can also be obtained by the village, including encouraging the creation of organic agricultural cultivation, and increasing environmental awareness.
