                         kg ha\−1 ) from two sources, biofertilizer (from anaerobic 
                         digestion of cattle wastewater) and urea, were applied to 
                         cultivate two sugarcane varieties (RB 867515 and SP 803280). °Brix 
                         values higher than 21% were obtained with application of 80 kg 
                         ha\−1 from biofertilizer. The mean productivity of the 
                         cultivar RB 867515 using biofertilizer was 147.5 ton ha\−1 
                         , while from urea it was 136.87 ton ha\−1 . The cultivar SP 
                         803280 produced an average yield of 152.25 ton ha\−1 when 
                         applying biofertilizer and 154.37 ton ha\−1 with use of 
                         urea. Significant differences (P \≤ 0.05) between the use 
                         of biofertilizer and urea were detected for cultivar RB 867515 in 
                         terms of crude protein concentration. The application of 80 kg of 
                         N ha\−1 was considered the ideal dose, corresponding to 
                         fertirrigation blades of 54 mm of biofertilizer. The experiment 
                         showed that the biofertilizer formulation analyzed can replace 
                         urea as a nitrogen source for growing sugarcane.",
