Rhizobial Inoculation and Molybdenum Fertilization in Peanut Crops Grown in a No Tillage System After 20 Years of Pasture

Carlos Alexandre Costa Crusciol, Jayme Ferrari Neto, Tsai Siu Mui, Alan Joseph Franzluebbers, Cláudio Hideo Martins da Costa, Gustavo Spadotti Amaral Castro, [...]


ABSTRACT: Peanut (Arachis hypogea) is an important legume grain consumed by humans and utilized for effective nutrient cycling in a diverse cropping system. Areas that have been cultivated with perennial pasture for decades may have nutritional deficiencies and lack a sufficient population of atmospheric nitrogen-fixing bacteria. Molybdenum is an essential micronutrient that is part of the enzyme nitrogenase contained within symbiotic Bradyrhizobium bacteria, which are responsible for fixing nitrogen in legumes. Our objective was to evaluate the effects of application […]

Soil Properties and Carbon Accumulation in an Integrated Crop-Livestock System Under No-Tillage

Nídia Raquel Costa, Marcelo Andreotti, Keny Samejima Mascarenhas Lopes, Kazuo Leonardo Yokobatake, João Paulo Ferreira, Cristiano Magalhães Pariz, [...]


In production systems such as the integrated crop-livestock system (ICL) under no-tillage, improvements have been observed in chemical, physical, and biological soil properties. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the changes in chemical and physical soil properties, as well as carbon (C) accumulation, in an Oxisol under irrigated conditions in the Cerrado (Brazilian tropical savanna) in an ICL system under no-tillage. The experiment was carried during the growing of 2010/2011, 2011/2012, and 2012/2013. A randomized block experimental design with four replications […]

Macronutrient accumulation and decomposition of brachiaria species as a function of nitrogen fertilization during and after intercropping with corn

Nídia Raquel Costa, Marcelo Andreotti, Salatiér Buzetti, Keny Samejima Mascarenhas Lopes, Fernanda Garcia dos Santos, Cristiano Magalhães Pariz


In regions with a tropical climate, the greatest limitations for straw maintenance on the soil surface are difficulties on its establishment and high rates of decomposition. With the aim of identifying the productive potential of Xaraes and Ruziziensis grasses, as well as subsequent straw formation for continuity of the no-tillage system, the following factors were evaluated: the dry matter yield, the lignin/total N ratio, macronutrient accumulation, and straw decomposition in two growing seasons. The treatments consisted of two Brachiaria species […]
