Oil palm is a commodity that provides excellent benefits and an abundance of oil-producing crops that were developed in various tropical countries including the one in Indonesia. Interception is considered an important factor in the hydrological cycle due to reduced rainfall that reaches the soil surface by a process of interception is quite large. This study was aimed to analyze the relationship between rainfall and interception, stem flow and through fall in a broad variety of oil palm plantation canopy closure. The study was conducted in February until May 2012 on oil palm plantations are that located in the Mendis village, Bayung Lincir district, Banyuasin regency, South Sumatra Province. This study consists of several stages of the main activity that are measurement of rainfall (Pg), through fall (Tf), and stem flow (Sf). Rainfall was positively correlated with the interception (Ic), through fall and stem flow. There is strong correlation between rainfall interception with through fall and stem flow of the greater rainfall interception is also getting bigger, the smaller Tf and Sf.
