Poultry manure, applied like organic fertilizer on corn, has not been studied extensively; so, no one knows its effect on the genealogy of the soil. However, organic fertilizer does not cost much, it is easy to buy and it has less degree of environmental degradation as compared to chemical fertilizers. This study was conducted in the commercial fields of St. Helena / PR with corn, using the triple hybrid 2B688, established in 2008 with no-till farming for seven years in order to evaluate the effect of poultry manure on corn yield. The treatment used was chemical fertilizer having nitrogen in the formulation NPK with an addition of three doses of poultry manure (0, 3.5 and 7 t ha-1) and a witness; whereas the experimental design was randomized blocks with split plots and five replications. It was observed that the results were not significant for the number of rows per ear and grains per spike. Nevertheless, increased yield in corn was observed with 100% of poultry manure.
Key words: Fertilization, yield, nitrogen, poultry manure.
