Abstract:

To study the performance of sesame genotypes to saline stress, an experiment was conducted to screen twenty-nine sesame genotypes in the soil pH 7.4 and EC 4.2 ds m-1 condition. Germination (%) along with different yield attributing traits were recorded. Ten germplasms germinated in the soil condition of experimental unit and they matured till harvesting that ensure these are adapted to saline soil environment under the experimental condition and may carry salt tolerant genes. Out of the ten genotypes, Rama, Savitri and CUMS 21 performed best on the basis of different yield attributing traits which could be suitable in saline environment of south 24 Parganas, West Bengal. In genetic variability study, high amount of heritability coupled with good amount genetic advance indicated that direct selection of capsules plant-1, seeds capsule-1 would be more effective than others for improvement of seed yield.
