Abstract

ROTILI, Eliane Aparecida et al. Use efficiency and response to phosphorus of application rice cultivars in highlands soils. Bragantia [online]. 2010, vol.69, n.3, pp. 705-710. ISSN 0006-8705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0006-87052010000300023.

This research's objective was to study the efficiency in the usage of phosphorus by rice cultivars in highland soils in the South of Tocantins State. The experiments evaluated six commercial cultivars of rice (BRS-Bonança BRS-Caiapó, BRS-Sertaneja, BRSMG-Curinga, BRSMG-Conai and BRS-Primavera), grown in areas with high and low phosphorus application: 20 and 120 kg ha-1 of P2O5. The experiments were carried out in a completely randomized blocks design, with four replicates. Based on grain yield, cultivars were classified in respect to the efficiency and response to phosphorus fertilization. The cultivar BRS-Bonança presented the highest phosphorus use efficiency and was the most responsive.
