Alterações da vitalidade do solo com o uso de preparados homeopáticos

O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a resposta de indicadores de vitalidade do solo às homeopatias. Foram adotados indicadores físico- químicos, microbiológicos e vegetais. Assim, as variáveis avaliadas foram: diâmetro médio ponderado e diâmetro médio geométrico dos agregados formados, capacidade...

Resumo inglês:The objective of this work was to evaluate homeopathic indicators of soil vitality. Physiochemical, microbiology and vegetal indicators were studied. The variables were: weighted mean of diameter and geometric mean of diameter of the formed aggregate, retention capacity of soil water, electric conductivity, total organic carbon, microbial respiration, carbon of the microbial biomass, microbial ratio and metabolic ratio. Among the vegetal indicators the number of days was evaluated from the beginning of seed germination, number of emerged plants, number of species, weighted mean of height group, mass of fresh and dry vegetal aerial part, abundance index as a function of diversity and species mass. It was also described the symptoms that were visualized in the aerial part of the plant. Bio-eletrographies of the soil were described after homeopathic treatments. The homeopathic preparations were done of organic salts and of common mineral elements of soils and in vital biological processes. The "Double-blind" procedure was adopted as well the decimal scale of dilution/dynamizations. The soil was collected from the layer of 0-5 cm of depth, in Arboreto- Medicinal Plant of UFV, in Viçosa, MG, being the area in process of natural succession more than 10 years. The soil was responsive to the homeopathies and respective dynamizations, being the responses differentiated as a function of time of soil treatments. Considering the soil as healthy, the responses indicated pathogenesis, or the primary action of the homeopathy. The hypothesis of the response fits similarity being, therefore, secondary answer or the reaction of the self-organization of soil to the homeopathic estimulation. There was interaction among arboreto soil, soils from several handlings and vitality of soils. The time of responses were dependent on the vitality state of the soil. The more the soil is well balanced or the less the soil is intoxicated the fastest the alteractions detected by the variables. The homeopathies demonstrated potential of interacting with the soil formation. Homeopathies may interfere in the mobilization processes and of immobilization of nutrients, in the microbial efficiency, in the dynamics of the water and in the physical structuring of the soil. The science of the homeopathy is applicable to the soil, being a promising resource to the organic-ecological agriculture.
