Abstract: A pot house experiment was carried out to study the effect of cobalt (Co) and farm yard manure (FYM) on growth and yield of maize at Department of Agricultural Chemistry and Soil Science, BACA, AAU, Anand with five levels of Co (0, 10, 20, 40 and 80 mg kg-1) and two levels of FYM (0 and 1%) on loamy sand (Typic Ustochrepts) soil. The experiment was laid out in a CRD (factorial) with three replications. The experimental results indicated that an application of cobalt @ 20 mg kg-1 soil recorded the highest plant height, green forage yield and leaves, stem and root dry matter at harvest than other levels of cobalt. Decrease in plant height, green forage yield and dry weight of leaves, Stem and root of maize were found in 40 and 80 mg kg-1 levels of Co. The higher plant height, green forage yield and dry matter yield was obtained in FYM application at 1% over no FYM application.
