Sesame is an important oilseed crop and India happens to be the largest producer. However, its productivity is quite low due to the infestation of insect pests and diseases and one of the important diseases is sesame phyllody transmitted by the leafhopper, Orosius albicinctus Distant. The biochemical basis of resistance to leafhoppers and sesame phyllodyin selected genotypes revealed that the total phenols in leaves (r = - 0.771**), shoot(r = - 0.764**) and pods (r = - 0.762**) showed a significant and negative relationship with phyllody incidence While, total sugars, reducing sugar, amino acids and crude proteins showed a positive relationship with phyllody incidence.
