This research aims at analyzing the response of Aloe vera L. plant on cow manure and urea fertilizer in sandy soil. The research which was conducted in Yogyakarta has three treatments of 10, 20, and 30t ha-1 levels of cow manure and five levels of urea fertilizer at 0, 150, 300, 450, 600kg ha-1. The research arranged a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replication. The variables measured include yield, growth, and vitamin content. A huge effect was found (P < 0.05) between manure and urea. Statistic analysis significant of data was tested by analysis of variant and continued Duncan’s Multiple Range Test of α < 5%. The highest yield and growth rate was located at 30t ha-1 and 450kg ha-1, while the most significant content of pro-vitamin A, vitamin C and provitamin E were found in 30t ha-1 and 300kg ha-1. Therefore, it can be concluded that 30t ha-1 manure and 300 to 450kg ha-1 urea are best used to grow plants.
