Abstract:

Present study comprised a line x tester analysis consists of seven female lines and three tester were crossed to estimate the heterosis for seed yield and yield contributing trait in sesame. Their 21 crosses were evaluated in two replication of randomized block design over two commercial checks Phule til and JLT-7 respectively. The morphological observations on 10 quantitative characters were recorded. The highest magnitude of heterosis over mid parent BSG-5 x LT-8 (90.44%) and over better parent BSG-5 x LT-8 (68.07%) for seed yield per plant. The cross BSG-5 x LT-8 (125.19%) and the cross BSG-5 x LT-5 (109.36%).showed the highest magnitude of standard heterosis standard check Phule til and JLT-7 respectively.
