Sources and Rates of Phosphorus in a Cultivation System Integrating Crop and Pasture Production in the State of Parana

IPNI-2009-BRA-55

Integrating crop and pasture production in the same area is becoming popular in Brazil. This cropping system creates several agronomic advantages with time, which generally results in higher yields and more profitability to the farmer. Phosphorus (P) is a key nutrient in these systems and only its adequate availability to the plants will lead to the desired success. Read more

Interpretive Summary

The integration of crop and pasture production (ICP) within the same area, using no-tillage cultivation systems, is becoming popular in Brazil due to its agronomic advantages. Phosphorus is a key nutrient in these systems and soils in the state of Parana are generally low to medium in plant available P.

The integration of crop and pasture production (ICP) within the same area, using no-tillage cultivation systems, is becoming popular in Brazil due to its agronomic advantages. Phosphorus is a key nutrient in these systems and soils in the state of Parana are generally low to medium in bioavailable P.

The integration of crop and pasture production within the same area is becoming popular in Brazil due to its agronomic advantages. Phosphorus is a key nutrient in these systems and soils in the state of Parana are generally low in bioavailable P. The main purpose of this project is to evaluate the effects of P rates and sources (water-soluble and water-insoluble) on soil quality, plant mineral nutrition, forage, grain, and meat yields in an integrated crop-livestock system under no-till.
