The different tillage systems interfere with soil chemical attributes mainly due to the site of preparation techniques. The aim of this study was to determine, in two time evaluation periods, the changes in soil chemical attributes affected by three tillage systems in Yellow Oxissol. The experimental design consists of a randomized block design, with split-plot (Soil Tillage systems X Depths samples) with 3 repetitions in two evaluation periods (2009 and 2012). The treatments consisted of three tillage systems, being Conventional Tillage (CT); No-Tillage (NT) and Reforestation with Paricá (RP). The two depths sampled were 0-0.1 m and 0.2-0.3 m. The attributes were evaluated as pH, organic matter, macronutrients levels, exchangeable acidity and micronutrient level. The soil tillage systems significantly affected the soil chemical attributes. In the NT system, the chemical attributes Ca, Mg, MO, P, K, Mn and Zn are concentrated on the most superficial layer of the soil, whereas in the CT there is a distribution of these variables along the topsoil.
Key words: Macronutrients, conventional tillage, no-tillage, reforestation
