SUMMARY

In order to know potassium availability in "leucita de Poços de Caldas" from Poços de Caldas, Minas Gerais, a Mitscherlich pot experiment was set up. The pots were filled with 6 kilograms of sieved (4 mm) "Terra Roxa Misturada" soil. Rice (Oryza sativa, L.), Dourado Agulha variety was the testing plant. Doses of potassium referred to are 1,5 g (as K20) from both KCl and "leucita de Poços de Caldas". There were 6 treatments, with 3 repetitions, as follows: 1) Control; 2) NP + 1 dose K (KCl); 3) NP + 2 doses K (KCl)); 4) NP + 3 doses K (KCl); 5) NP + 1 dose K (leucita); 6) NP + 2 doses K (leucita) and 7) NP + 3 doses K (leucita).
Each pot received 50 seeds. Five days after germination the seedlings were thinned to 35. Harvesting took place 4 months after germination.
Potassium (as KCl) promoted an increase in yield of both stalk and grain as compared with control. Potassium content in the leaves was also higher in all treatment in which KCl was supplied.
Potassium, as "leucita de Poços de Caldas» did not show any favorable effect on both stalk and grain yield and on its content in the leaves.
