Abstract:

Sixteen genotypes consisting of ten lines and six testers were crossed in line x tester fashion. The hybrids and their parents were used to estimate three types of heterosis, sca effects for 11 quantitative traits. Based on the sca, heterosis and per se performance, the superior crosses were identified for each trait. The crossesPKDS-62 x IS 562 B and KKS-98049 x KMR-78 which showed superior performance in yield and yield contributing traits and these were the best among the 60 crosses studied. These crosses may be used for commercial exploitation of heterosis in sesame.
