Abstract: The study was conducted during summer, 2014 at pot house, modern laboratory, Micronutrient Research Project (I.C.A.R), Anand Agricultural University, Anand. The pot experiment was laid out in completely randomized design (factorial) with three repetation. Total twenty treatments comprising of five doses of Cd (0, 10, 20, 40 and 80 ppm) and two levels of FYM (0 and 20 t ha-1) were tested in forage maize and forage sorghum crops. Maize (C1) had taller plant height, more number of leaves, shoot weight, root weight and total dry matter yield as compared to sorghum (C2) is mainly due to genetic makeup of crops. In maize and sorghum crops Cd0F1 treatment recorded significantly the highest yield. Under Cd80F0 treatment the minimum yield in both the crops were recorded.
