MORAIS, L.A.S. and BARBOSA, A.G.. Influence of green manure and different organic manure on production of aereal phytomass of Ocimum selloi. Rev. bras. plantas med. [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.spe, pp. 246-249. ISSN 1516-0572. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-05722012000500020.
The aim of this work was to avail the effect of different manures in association or nor with green manure on yield of leaves of Ocimum selloi Benth. The assay was accomplished on experimental area of Embrapa Environmental (Jaguariúna district), at two different spaces (with or without green manure Crotalaria juncea). The treatments used were T1 - witness (no manure), T2 - chicken manure (5 kg m-2), T3 - commercial product Fishfértil - 5 mL m-2) and T4 - composting (4 kg m-2). The cut was realized on 180 days after the planting (january - 2011), and were collected four plants/ plot. The yield of dried and fresh Ocimum selloi phytomass was availed. The experimental design was factorial scheme (2x4), with four repetitions. The treatment with chicken manure showed best results on Ocimum selloi leaves yield than the others treatments, but did not was influence by using Crotalaria juncea.
