Production of dry mass and regrowth vigor of Brachiaria brizantha cv. Marandu assigned to differents nitrogen levels and frequencies harvest
Keywords:Harvest frequency, Nitrogen, Regrowth vigor
AbstractThe experiment was disposed in a randomized blocks design, in a factorial scheme, with the objective to evaluate of effect of the nitrogen levels (0, 45, 90, 180 and 360 mg dm-3 of nitrogen - N) and frequencies of harvests (14 and 28 days) under the production of total dry mass and the regrowth vigor of Brachiaria brizantha cv. Marandu, in pots, in a greenhouse, with three repetitions by treatment. All of the variations sources (nitrogen levels, frequencies of harvests and the interactions between them) had effect statistically significative, positive and negative under the production of total dry mass, respectively, for the N levels and the frequencies of harvest. In the study of the regrowth vigor (production harvest-1), the interaction of the harvests and the nitrogen levels were not significative (P<0,01) by the Wilks test. The effect off the nitrogen levels inside of each harvest as much as frequents defoliations, how for less frequents defoliations, provided increment in regrowth vigor with the increase in the supply of N.
