Abstract

Field experiment was conducted on sandy loam soil to study the influence of different varieties of sesamum and N levels on yield and yield attribute's of sesamum at different stages of crop growth. Plant height was significantly influenced by the varieties and N levels. CO 1 sesamum significantly recorded the highest seed yield of 512 kg/ha while the variety TMV 6 recorded the highest oil content of 50.1 per cent. Oil yield was increased upto 36 kg N/ha only. Increasing N levels increased the crude protein content and CO 1 sesamum recorded the maximum crude protein content of 17.6 per cent.
