We study the energy decay rate for a plate model under weak growth assumptions on the feedback function. Applying an integral inequality well adapted to this type of problems we improve some earlier results of Lagnese and of Rao in two respects: we weaken and simplify their growth assumptions and we use only one feedback instead of two as before.
