SANTI, Antônio Luis et al. Nitrogen management in bean crop planted in conventional tillage. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2006, vol.36, n.4, pp. 1079-1085. ISSN 0103-8478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782006000400006.
The beans varietes, TPS Nobre and Pérola were grown during the summer season of 2001/2002, in Santa Maria, State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, with the objectives of study the application timing and spplitting of nitrogem in conventional tillage. The nitrogen was applied at planting (15kg ha-1 in all treatments) a single rate at 14, 21, 28 and 35 DAE and at the same times in two applications: 50% + 50% of the dose, 30% + 70% of the dose, 70% + 30% of the dose. The experimental was in randomized blocks design with four replications, with split-plot. It was not verified interaction between time and nitrogen portionin. Moreover, TPS Nobre grain yield was 49% higher than variety Pérola. Higher grain yield was obtained through the application of nitrogen full rate at 21, however good results were obtained with the portionong of the nitrogen fertilization (50% 14 DAE + 50% 21 DAE), (70% 14 DAE + 30% 28 DAE) e (30% 21 DAE + 70% 28 DAE). The nitrogen application after 28 DAE did not provided high grain yields.
