Abstract

Fifteen diverse parents and the crosses (12 x 3) of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) were evaluated for correlation between oil yield and its contributing traits. The genotypic correlation and path coefficient analysis were studied between oil yield per plant and other yield contributing characters. Oil yield had highly significant and positive genotypic association with seed yield, number of capsules per plant and plant height. The seed yield per plant exhibited highly significant and positive genotypic association with number of capsules per plant. Seed yield had maximum direct effect on oil yield followed by number of capsules per plant.
