MAI, Marlon Evandro Müller et al. Management of nitrogen fertilization in the succession black oat/corn in the notillage system. Pesq. agropec. bras. [online]. 2003, vol.38, n.1, pp.125-131. ISSN 0100-204X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-204X2003000100017.
The objectives of this study were to evaluate, in the succession black oat/corn, the dry matter production and N accumulation by black oat and their corn productivity, the influence of applied N on soil N content and the best application time of mineral N for corn production. The treatments were: 15-0-20-55, 30-0-20-40, 45-0-20-25, 0-35-20-35, 0-70-20-0, 0-0-20-70 e 0-0-0-0, corresponding, respectively, to the amounts of N (kg ha1) applied at black oat tillering, before corn seeding, at corn seeding and corn sidedress. The increase in the dry matter production and of N accumulated in the black oat, with the applications of N in the black oat tillering, did not affect corn grain productivity. Although the application of N before corn seeding provided greater soil N content at the beginning of corn development, the application of N as sidedress provided the highest corn grain yield.
