The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of alternative substrates from the grain industries of Paragominas-Pará, for the production of cabbage seedlings. The experimental design was completely randomized, with three treatments (soybean residue, rice straw, commercial substrate) with five replications. The following morphological characteristics were determined: height of the seedlings, diameter of the lap, number of leaves per plant, fresh shoot weight, dry shoot mass, fresh root mass, dry mass of the roots. Therefore, in this study it was concluded that the soybean residue was the substrate that most stood out, indicating the potential of this material as a substrate for the crop. Keywords: Brassica oleraceae var. L capitata, rice husk, seedling development, soybean residue.
