Abstract:

The present study was conducted during Kharif 2018 at Agricultural Research Station, Yellamanchili, Andhra Pradesh, India, comprising of 114 sesame genotypes evaluated for seven parameters viz., days to 50 % flowering, plant height (cm), branches per plant, capsules per plants, seeds per capsule, days to maturity and seed yield per plant (g). Analysis of variance showed highly significant differences among 114 genotypes for all the characters studied showing the presence of genetic variability among the materials studied. The maximum intercluster distance was recorded between cluster V & cluster XI (2815.15) indicating the maximum divergence between the clusters. Among the relative contribution of the characters under study, the parameters days to maturity, number of branches per plant and number of capsules showed maximum contribution.
