Abstract: An investigation entitled “Effect of potassium, zinc and FYM on content and uptake of micronutrients by forage maize (Zea mays L.) grown on loamy sand soil” was carried out during summer season of the year 2015 at B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand on loamy sand soil. The present pot trial consisting of 18 treatment combinations involving with three levels of K2O (0, 30 and 60 kg ha-1) and Zn (0, 10 and 20 kg ha-1) and two levels of FYM (0 and 10 t ha-1) were tried in FCRD with three replications. The experimental results revealed that the significantly maximum Zn content was recorded under zinc application of 20 kg ha-1 over the rest of treatments at 30 DAS and at harvest. In uptake study, application of K2O @ 60 kg ha-1, Zn @ 20 kg ha-1 and FYM @ 10 t ha-1 recorded significantly the highest uptake of Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu by crop at harvest.
