This study aims to determine the effect of treatment doses of biochar and compost on the growth and yield of sweet corn. The experiment was conducted using a randomized block design with nested experiment, where factor nested dose for each type of fertilizer. Factors treatment consists of two types of fertilizers that biochar and compost with 3 levels dose and a control for comparison. The composition of the treatment is: without treatment doses of biochar 5 tonnes / ha, biochar dose of 10 tonnes / ha, compost dose of 7.5 tons / ha and a dose of compost 15 tons / ha. The results showed that the weight of the economic results of the corn crop is the highest cobs wet weight was obtained at doses of biochar 5 tonnes / ha of 338.33 g, an increase of 23.44% when compared to the untreated 274.17 g. Cob wet weight of compost obtained at doses of 7.5 tonnes / ha of 336.67 g increased by 22.80% when compared to the untreated 274.17 g.
