This research analyzed the composition of trace elements in the anthill soil samples in the rubber plantations in some areas of the Songkhla province, including Thepha Subdistrict, Ko Saba Subdistrict, and Tha Muang Subdistrict in Thepha District, Ban Node Subdistrict in Saba Yoi District, and Plak Nu Sub-district in Na Thawi District. With the wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) technique, the samples that were analyzed are the anthill base from these areas. The results showed that there were 28 elements, nitrogen, phosphorus and phosphorus compounds are found most in the area of Ko Saba Sub-district, Thepha District. For potassium, iron and iron compounds are found most in the area of Plak Nu Sub-district, Na Thawi District. Notice that nitrogen compounds are not found in the studied area, which in the future, the data from this research may be applied to agriculture.
