Abstract

FERREIRA, Regina Lúcia F et al. Organic cropping of radish in no-tillage under died and live mulching. Hortic. Bras. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.3, pp. 299-303. ISSN 0102-0536.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-05362011000300007.

The use of volunteer plants and live coverage of peanut (Arachis pintoi) was evaluated, associating the application of organic compost in organic production of radish in no-till. The experiment was carried out at Federal University of Acre, in Rio Branco, Acre State, Brazil. A randomized complete block design with a split plot arrangement (4x3) and four replications was used. The plots consisted of the no-tillage systems with live coverage of peanut, with live coverage of spontaneous plants (weeds), with mulching of spontaneous plants, and conventional soil tillage with no-mulching soil. The subplots were composed of the doses of organic compost of 5, 10 and 15 t ha-1 in dry basis. The no-tillage with straw weed mulch had similar performance to the conventional soil tillage, both superior to the crop on the no-tillage with live mulch. The productivity of the radish cv. Cometa, was not affected by increasing doses of organic compost, being possible to apply only 5 t ha-1, whereas in the conventional tillage, the increasing productivity was higher compared to the direct planting only in the higher dose of compost (15 t ha-1).
