The objective of this work was to evaluate the growth and productivity of BRS Quênia grass (Panicum maximum) submitted to nitrogen fertilization in Alta Floresta, MT. The highest dry matter yields occurred at doses 150 and 300 kg ha-1. It was observed the occurrence of green leafhopper (Empoasca kraemeri) in the final period of the experiment. The BRS Quênia grass, under the conditions of the experiment, presented a high response to nitrogen fertilization. The dose of 150 kg of N ha-1is recommended. Further studies are suggested to verify the susceptibility of BRS Quênia grass under the occurrence of the greenleafhopper (E. kraemeri) and to identify the best conditions for the maximum performance of this forage in the region.
