Mucuna-preta (Mucuna aterrima) become a troublesome forage crop when bad manage due to staggered seed’s sprout. Therefore, evaluate the response of mucuna-preta seeds after a simulation of a burning sugarcane crop. Carried out a two field experiments, 50 seeds were distributed randomly in 0,25 m2 on soil surface (0 cm), at 2 and 5 cm of depth and in wire meshes at 50, 100 and 150 cm above soil surface. The velvet bean seed’s germination is effected when seeds are near or until 150 above soil surface during a sugarcane burning.
