Phosphorous avaliability to rice plants was evaluated in an experiment under greenhouse conditions using an acid and low phosphorus soil. Five fertilizers (Alvorada rock phosphate-FNA, amonion monophosphate-MAP, simple superphosphate-SFS, triple superphosphate-SFT and magnesium termophosphate-TM), three rates (100, 200 and 300 mg P dm-3 of soil), one control and ten plants of rice/pot were used. Phosphorus in soil samples were analized using the following extractants: Mehlich-1, Olsen and resin. Dry matter, P content and P absorved by the shoot were correlated with the P recovered by the three chemical methods. The MAP and SFS at the rate of 200 mg P dm-3 of soil, allowed the highest dry matter accumulation in above ground parts of rice plants. The MAP and SFS at the rate of 200 mg P dm-3 of soil, allowed the highest dry matter in above ground parts of rice plants. Differences among soil chemical P-extractants and a positive correlation with the evaluated parameter were observed. Olsen's extractants showed were the best correlation with rice response to rates and sources of P.
