In an intercropping lettuce-carrot system submitted to crescent dosages of organic compost (0; 12; 24; 48 Mg ha-1) were monitored carbon from soil microbial biomass (MBC), labile carbon in fumigated soil (LCF), in non-fumigated soil (LCNF), in autoclaved soil (LCA) and total organic carbon (TOC) at 0-10 cm of depth. Pasture and forest areas surrounding the experiment were used as reference. Five samples from soil were evaluated at 8 days before the beginning of the experiment, 0; 6; 60 and 114 days after manuring (dam). LCF was the attribute that presented the most consistent correlation with TOC that is usually utilized to detect changes in soil organic matter. Increasing dosages of organic compost caused the increase of MBC, LCF, LCNF, LCA and TOC. From 60 days after planting and forward, MBC and LCF presented decrease of their levels according to the quality of organic compost. Pasture and forest soils behave as contrasts, holding lower and higher content of carbon of soil, respectively.

Summary translation

Em sistema de consórcio alface-cenoura submetido a doses crescentes de composto orgânico (0, 12, 24, 48 Mg ha-1) foram monitorados o carbono da biomassa microbiana do solo (CBM), carbono lábil de solo fumigado (CLF), não fumigado (CLNF), solo autoclavado (CLA) e carbono orgânico total (COT) na profundidade de 0-10 cm. Solo de pastagem e floresta adjacentes ao experimento foram usados como referência. Amostras de solo foram coletadas aos 8 dias antes da instalação, 0, 6, 60 e 114 dias após adubação. O CLF foi quem apresentou correlação mais consistente com o COT, atributo mais utilizado para detectar mudanças no conteúdo de matéria orgânica do solo. O aumento das doses de composto orgânico aumentou o conteúdo de CBM, CLF, CLNF, CLA e COT. A partir dos 60 dias após plantio, CBM e CLF apresentaram redução de seus níveis em função da qualidade do composto orgânico. Os solos de pastagem e floresta comportaram-se como contrastes, contendo menor e maior conteúdo de carbono do solo, respectivamente.
