Climbing large productions/productivity is the result of assertive management, primarily associated with plant nutrition through soil fertilization. Another bottleneck in agricultural production, not yet fully elucidated in the literature, is the most appropriate method of fertilizer application, aiming to reduce environmental degradation, lower production costs, enhance nutrient absorption in the soil, and achieve high productivity. The present study aimed to evaluate the components of soybean (Glycine max L) production subjected to organomineral and mineral fertilization, with and without incorporation into the soil. The study was conducted in an experimental field area at Fazenda Camarão in the municipality of Palmeiras de Goiás-GO, using a randomized block experimental design with five treatments: T1: Control (without fertilization); T2: Organomineral fertilization with soil incorporation; T3: Organomineral fertilization without soil incorporation; T4: Mineral fertilization without soil incorporation; T5: Mineral fertilization with soil incorporation, each with 5 repetitions. Analyses of the number of pods per plant, number of grains per pod, number of grains per plant, and productivity were conducted. ANOVA was performed, followed by Tukey's post hoc test to identify differences between treatments. The treatment of Organomineral fertilization with soil incorporation showed superiority in all variables of the study, except for the number of grains per pod, where no significant difference was observed. Organomineral fertilizer demonstrates the potential to replace mineral fertilizers and enhance productivity.
