Abstract: In the region of Campos Gerais, Paraná, Brazil, corn fields cover about one third of no-tillage summer cropland. Before introducing alternative forms of management, it is necessary to gather information on variables that influence crop yield. This paper was aimed at correlating corn yield with chemical and physical soil variables, and human variables, considering spatial variability in the region. The human variables considered in the study were population pressure, population pressure index, seeding depth and standard deviation of seeding depth. Soil variables for the depth of 0-20cm were thickness of horizon A, sand, silt, clay, organic matter, pH, boron and manganese. For the depth of 20-40cm were sand, silt, clay, organic matter, manganese, and copper. The variable mass of grains per plant represented crop yield. The statistical methods 'Best subsets' and 'Stepwise' were used to reduce the number of explanatory variables. Soil variables were reaffirmed as explanatory of mass of grains. The human variable seeding depth influences corn yield, showing the importance of the planting process on crop yield.
