ASSMANN, Tangriani Simioni et al. Performance of at and italian rye-grass mixture and soil chemical attributes as related to liquid swine manure application. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Solo [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.6, pp.1515-1523. ISSN 1806-9657.

Dry matter production of winter annual pastures is usually low due to the limited soil nutrient availability, which can be amended by the use of liquid swine manure (LSM). This experiment, carried out from May to November 2003, aimed to evaluate the efficiency of LSM in the production and accumulation of dry matter, and N-leaf concentration of an oat/Italian rye grass mixture, as well as the effect on some chemical attributes of an Oxisol in the soil layers 0-5, 5-10 and 10-20 cm soil layers. The experiment was arranged in a complete randomized block design with four replications. The treatments were four LSM doses (0; 20; 40 and 80 m3 ha-1), applied 48 and 116 days after crop emergence. The application of 80 m³ ha-1 of SLM resulted in a 34 %increase in accumulated dry matter as compared to the control treatment (no SLM application). It was observed that higher LSM doses increased mineral nitrogen concentration only in the 0-5 cm soil layer. LSM application increased K concentration only in the 0-5 cm soil layer, increased the pH and reduced the Al3+ concentration up to 20 soil depth. LSM doses increased leaf nitrogen concentration by 0.09 mg km for each m3 of applied LSM.
