Each peat land used has a different vegetation that will influences peat soil moisture during dry seasons. The level of fire risk depends on peat soil moisture in every land used. The objective of this research was to evaluate the variability of peat soil moisture at different peat land used during dry season and its impact on fire risk The research was carried on peat land with four types of land used located Sub District of Pedamaran, Ogan Komering Ilir District South Sumatera Province was held from June 2018 to July 2018. We investigated soil moisture variability in this site to a depth 30 cm under four type of peat land used during dry season 2018. The result of the research showed that on the second month of the dry season all peat soil to 30 cm depth have soil moisture category moderate fire risk except on secondary forest category at low risk fire. The higher fire risk of the land used the more attention we must focus to prevent the fire.
