Abstract: The pot experiment was carried out at net house of the department of soil science and agricultural chemistry, B. A. College of Agriculture, Anand Agricultural University, Anand on the “Interaction Effect of Potassium and Zinc on Yield and Nutrient Uptake of Forage Maize (Zea Mays L.) Grown on Loamy Sand Soil” during summer season of the year 2015. The experiment was laid out in a completely randomized design (factorial) with three repetitions. The three levels of K2O (0, 30 and 60 kg ha-1) and Zn (0, 10 and 20 kg ha-1) were selected in the experiment. The combination of potassium @ 60 kg ha-1 along with zinc @ 20 kg ha-1 gave significantly the highest green forage and dry matter yield over the rest of combinations. Treatment combination of K2O @ 60 kg ha-1 along with Zn @ 20 kg ha-1 recorded significantly the higher phosphorus, potassium and zinc uptake by the crop than rest of the combinations, but was at par with K2Zn3.
