Abstract
An experiment was carried out during kharif 2011 at Department of Agricultural Meteorology Farm, College of Agriculture, Pune. Field experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications. There were four varieties viz., V1- Phule Til-1, V2- AKT-101, V3- JLT-7 and V4- Padma and four sowing time viz., S1- 26th, S2- 27th, S3- 28th and S4- 29th Standard Meteorological Week (SSMW). Among the four different varieties of sesamum, V2- AKT101 recorded significantly higher growth parameters viz., plant height, number of functional leaves plant-1, leaf area plant-1, number of branches plant-1, days to 50% flowering, days to capsule formation, days to maturity and dry matter plant-1 with yield attributing characters viz., number of capsules plant-1, weight of seed plant-1 and test weight. The variety AKT-101 was significantly superior over JLT-7. The highest grain yield, straw yield and harvest index were recorded with variety AKT-101. However, oil content was more in variety Padma. The highest grain, straw yields and harvest index were recorded when sesamum sown during 27th SMW. Oil content was more under sowing of sesamum during 28th SMW.
