Urban waste compost and sewage sludge in the production of cut flower chrysanthemum, in Latosol Red- Yellow soil.


The present work evaluated the production of cut chrysanthemum using urban waste compost and sewage sludge. The experiment was conducted under protected cultivation, in São Manoel Experimental Farm, of University of Agronomic Sciences of UNESP, Campus of Botucatu. The soil was a Latosol Red-Yellow. The experimental design was a randomized block in a 2 x 4 factorial, constituted by combination of two residues (urban waste compost and sewage sludge with at four rates (0, 10, 20 e 30 t ha-1 urban waste compost and sewage sludge). They were evaluated at the end of the cultivation cycle for: height, diameter of plants, number of leaves, foliar area, stem dry mass, leaf dry mass, total plant dry mass, number, diameter and inflorescences dry mass and number of secondary stems. The data were analysed with the program STAT and the results indicated that under the experimental conditions, the urban waste compost and sewage sludge in the different doses had not revealed efficient production of cut chrysanthemum ‘Calabria’.
