Turns or consorting activities of agriculture and livestock within a property can mean savings and profitability for the producer. Thus, the work will aim at an Oxisol under irrigated and rainfed conditions in the Cerrado, evaluate: a) the production of whole plant silage corn harvest in two heights (0.20 and 0.45 m above ground level) and production of high moisture corn or dry beans, intercropped with grass and / or forage legume in the summer, and pastures and beans in succession in winter, b) the effect of stubble remaining on the productivity of winter beans irrigated in succession c) changes in the physical and chemical attributes of the soil layer 0 to 0.20 med) economic performance of production systems. The work will be developed in FEPE, belonging to the Faculty of Engineering / UNESP, campus of Single Island, located in Selvíria-MS. The experimental design is a randomized block design in a factorial 2 x 2 with six repetitions and would aim to assess for two consecutive years consortia: M1) corn / Urochloa brizantha. Palisade and M2) corn / Urochloa brizantha. Marandu / pigeon pea production of whole plant silage or wet grain or grains only. The sowing of beans and management of forage, will also be used the same experimental design consortia to evaluate the effect of these remaining straw on the performance of the bean or productivity of forage in winter in irrigated and rainfed conditions, respectively. We will evaluate the morphological attributes of plants of maize and beans, yield components and grain yield of these crops. Forages will be assessed the macronutrient, chemical analysis, and the levels of total digestible nutrients (TDN).
