The objective of this work was to evaluate the compound based on litterfall and basalt powder on the corn crop, in a comparison of physical and chemical soil changes, in order to search development based on the knowledge of nature and natural sources that offer the improvement in the growth of plants for the purpose of organic production. The soil applications were made with aqueous solutions—the mixture in % of the compound and the remainder of the water. Four concentrations (25, 50, 75 and 100% for a 500 ml measurement) of the organic compound and control with 500 ml of water was performed. A total of five corn plants were used for each dosage. The planting was done in lines of 5 plants for 5 dosages (5 × 5). The applications occurred in the pre-planting (directly in the soil, before receiving the seeds) and after every five days.
