This work was carried out aiming to evaluate the effect of phosphate fertilizer rate (0, 60, 120 and 180 kg ha -1 of P 2O 5) over sugarcane yield and sugar yield on a dystrophic Dark-Red Latossol, with medium texture. The experimental design was a randomized block with four replications. The phosphate fertilizer increased yield of the plant cane and ratoon cane. The stalk average was also affected by the phosphate fertilizer. The 120 kg ha -1 of P 2O 5 was the highest profitable rate.
