Livestock is one of the main responsible for the Brazilian GDP, standing out in cattle ranching and one of the great problems of the producers, are degraded pastures. The objective of this work is to evaluate the relationship of different P sources and different application times in the reformulation of degraded pasture areas, using Brachiaria brizantha cv. Marandu. The experimental design was (DBC) in factorial scheme 5x3, being 5 treatments, control and 4 sources of P and three times of application. The chemical fertilizer MAP and reactive natural phosphate presented better performance. Early liming contributed to improved forage performance in the study.
