Abstract

Sesame is highly a fertilizer responsive crop especially to nitrogen. Even then farmers seldom apply inorganic fertilizers. Adequate application of nitrogenous fertilizers not only improves the crop yield but also maintains soil N status and thus sustain productivity. Various reports indicate that in sesame, application of N fertilizers results in significdnt increase in growth and yield parameters and seed yield. The response of sesame to N fertilizers varied from 20–150 kg ha−1 under different micro farming situations. Each successive increase in N level upto 150 kg ha−1 increased the various growth parametels viz., plant height, number of branches and drymatter production. Similarly yield components and yield were significantly increased upto 150 kg N/ha.
