Abstract:

Association and path coefficient analysis was computed on 96 genotypes of Sesamum (Sesamum indicum L.). Seed yield was positively correlated with plant height, number of branches per plant, number of capsules per plant, capsule length and 1000 seed weight. Selection based onplant height, number of branches per plant, number of capsules per plant and capsule length would increase seed yield. Path analysis indicated that number of capsules per plant had the maximum direct effect followed by plant height, capsule length and height to first capsule.
