Abstract:
An attempt was made to study the general and specific combining ability in sesame (<em>Sesamum indicum </em>L.) through L X T analysis with seven lines and three testers. Seven characters <em>viz., </em>plant height, number of branches per plant, number of capsules per plant, capsule length, number of seeds per capsule, 1000 seed weight and seed yield per plant were studied. Based on the general combining ability effects of parents and <em>per se </em>performance, the genotypes FFAT0841, SVPR1 and FFAT0820 have considerable potential and can be utilized for developing cultivars, with high yield by using appropriate breeding strategy. Based on <em>sca </em>effects, the hybrids FFAT0818 X TMV6, FFAT0845 X SVPR1 and FFAT0831 X CO1 were adjudged as better hybrids for yield and yield component traits and hence recommended for yield improvement.
