Abstract: The experiment was conducted at the Farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh during the period from June to November 2012 to study the effect of cowdung on yield and nutrient content of transplanted aman rice (BRRI dhan33). The experiment consisted 4 levels of cowdung, viz., C0: 0 ton cowdung ha-1 (control), C1: 4.5 ton cowdung ha-1, C2: 5.0 ton cowdung ha-1 and C3: 5.5 ton cowdung ha-1 following Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. Tallest plant (88.6 cm at harvest), maximum number of effective tillers hill-1 (13.4), maximum grain yield ha-1 (5.2 ton) was found from C3 while minimum from C0. On the other hand, maximum N (1.39 ), P (0.29 ), K (0.65 ), S (0.13 ) and Zn (0.026 ) content in grain was found from C3 which was statistically similar with the C2 whereas minimum from C0.
