Abstract

A field experiment was conducted during the swomer season of 1997 and 1998 to
study the effect of blofertiUzer (Phosfert, blopUn and vltonnone) and growth regulator (protein
I)ydrolysate ) on growth and productivity of sesame (Sesamum indlcum L.). Use of
blofertiUzer or growth regulator alone showed significant Improvement In plant height and
nwober of branches/plant. It tended to Increase the yield components such as nwober of
. capsules/plant, nwober of seeds/capsule and l000-seed weight and so also the seed yield
over those obtained without having any blofertiUzer or growth regulator treatment (control),
but the differences were not significant. Combined use of blofertiUzer and growth regulator,
however, recorded further Improvement In growth attributes, which In turn resulted In significant
Increase In the entire above yield components arid ultimately the seed yield over no
application. Use of blofertiUzer and growth regUlator together brought about 32 to 34.6 %
yield Increase over control.
