ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to test the propolis homeopathic
solutions to control powdery mildew (Erysiphe diffusa) in soybean. Soybean plants
were grown in plastic pots with a capacity of 10 L. The treatments consisted of two
homeopathic potencies of propolis (6 and 12 CH) and 3 numbers of applications, in
addition to plants that received distilled water (control), with 5 repetitions each. The
severity assessment occurred 28 days after the first application, with the aid of software
AFSoft 1.0. Data were analyzed by ANOVA with the aid of the statistical SISVAR. The
results indicate no significant difference in severity of powdery mildew in soybeans
between treatments. Thus, it is concluded that the propolis homeopathic solutions has
no efficient control of powdery mildew on soybeans.
