Summary

O presente trabalho teve como objetivo avaliar a influência dos diversos ritmos da Lua sobre o rendimento de cenoura semeada em diferentes datas, sob as mesmas condições de manejo, em propriedade de agricultura familiar com manejo biodinâmico, em Botucatu-SP. Os tratamentos foram as datas de semeadura, que variaram de 5 de maio até 4 de junho em 2005, e de 25 de abril a 25 de maio, em 2006. A colheita ocorreu aos 82 dias após cada semeadura, sendo avaliadas a massa fresca de raízes e de folhas, e massa seca de raízes. Foi utilizada a metodologia de avaliação estatística do cálculo do Índice Estacional. Nos dois períodos avaliados, a variável massa seca de raízes foi a única que, no contraste entre médias, apresentou diferença significativa nos ritmos sinódico tradicional e sinódico caboclo. No ritmo sinódico tradicional, a fase nova foi superior às fases crescente e cheia, e no ritmo sinódico caboclo, a fase cheia foi inferior às demais.

Summary translation

The purpose of this work was to evaluate the influence of moon rhythms on yield of carrot roots under biodynamic management sowed in different dates. The experiment was carried out over a two period on a biodynamic farm, in Botucatu, São Paulo State, Brazil. Rhythms were tested observing the effects of seeding at different planting dates. The experiment was performed with four randomized blocks and 31 treatments (different dates) in 2005, and fourteen treatments in 2006. The harvest was made 82 days after sowing. Effects associated with planting at a specific lunar position were measured by the deviations from the trend curve. The following characteristics had been evaluated: fresh mass of roots and leaves and dry mass of roots. Dry mass was the only one that in the contrast between averages showed significant results in the two periods of the experiment. Result was that the synodic new phase was superior to the first quarter, and full phases and in the “caboclo” synodic rhythm, the full phase was inferior to the other.
