ABSTRACT: This study was conducted in a greenhouse to evaluate the influence of
Phosphorus homeopathy dinamizations and levels of mound nets of termites material on
components of growth and absorption of P in sorghum plants. The experimental design
was completely randomized in a factorial 4 x 5, with four replications, whose factors
were four levels of mound nets of termites material (0, 25, 50 and 75 g dm-3) and five
levels of dynamizations of homeopathy Phosphorus (0, 6, 12, 18 and 30CH). The doses
of nets material were homogenized with subsamples of 3.5 dm-3 of soil, put in plastic
pots, which were grown, after thinning, nine plants of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.)
Moench) during 60 days after the sowing. Volumes of 1 mL of each homeopathy
Phosphorus were solubilized in 1000 mL of water and this solution were applied
weekly 250 mL per pot until the next harvest. After harvest, it was evaluated the shoots
and roots dried materials. The homeopathy Phosphorus influenced significantly (p
<0.01) shoots and roots, whereas the nets material only influenced (p <0.05) the
production of shoot dry matter. From the regression equations adjusted were estimated
increases in the traits of values studied in relation to the control, with emphasis on the
shoot dry matter production (76.2%) with the Phosphorus 30CH and (7.9%) with the
nets material, applied at a dose of 75 g dm-3. The homeopathy Phosphorus in view of
the results presented, stimulates further studies to better evaluate its performance under
different conditions of crop production.
