I had some mail correspondence with Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Ji some time
back as to why Sri Ramanujacharya had not cited Srimad Bhagavatam in any of
his works. Some of the observations of Sri Krishnan Ji are as follows.

1.  Many scholars opine that Srimad Bhagavatam, in its current form, was
not in existence prior to 12/13th Century AD.

2.  All the three Acharyas, Sri Bhagavatpada / Sri Ramanujacharya / Sri
Madhvacharya,  have accepted Sri Vishnu Mahapurana as the most
authoritative of all the puranas.

3. Not only Sri Ramanujacharya. Even Sri Vedanta Desikacharya (13th  Century)
who has quoted exhaustively from various sources in his numerous works, far
more extensively than Sri Ramanujacharya, has also not quoted from Srimad
