IGUE, Kozen; GARGANTINI, Hermano and ALCOVER, Milton. Effect of liming and phosphate manuring on wheat cultivated in a soil of low pH and fertility. Bragantia [online]. 1970, vol.29, n.unico, pp. 59-66. ISSN 0006-8705. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0006-87051970000100005.
The effect of phosphate manuring associated with liming on wheat yield was tested in an Ortho-Dark Red Latosol, at Capão Bonito Experimental Station. There was a significant response on the wheat grain yield following application of phosphorus and lime. The yield increase was positively correlated to the phosphorus concentration, but 2 t/ha or 4 t/ha of lime had similar effect. Limestone applied prior to plowing resulted in better yield than after.
