The use of modern techniques in agriculture has been one of the major factors that have complemented agriculture in recent years, with a significant increase in the rates of production and productivity. In addition, practices that have promoted greater sustainability in agricultural systems, such as no-tillage has been adopted in many crops. The present study intends to verify the behavior of common bean in no-tillage on millet straws and a single consortium with legumes: sunn hemp, grax velvet bean, pigeon peas, and jack bean, totaling five cover crop. All cases will be tested at doses of fertilizer nitrogen cover, using urea (0, 50.100, and 150 kg N.ha-1). Will be evaluated biomass production of cover crops and productivity, yield, and seed quality obtained using the cv. IAC-Tuna.(AU)
