The nonlinear Landau-Zener tunneling of a Bose-Fermi mixture in a double-well potential is studied in the present paper. The effect of interaction parameters on bosonic and fermionic tunneling probability is studied for the mixture of 40K-87Rb. The tunneling phenomena of the system can be controled by adjusting sweeping rate, intraspecies interaction, interspecies interaction and the numbers of bosons and fermions. It is noted that there are three different regions in phase diagram: self-trapping (ST), complete tunneling (CT) and incomplete tunneling (ICT).
