Abstract

In this study, ten breeding lines of sesame (Sesamum indicum L) from Macedonia were evaluated in respect to morphological and technological traits for their utilization in both agricultural applications and food industry. A considerable variation was found among the genotypes for number of capsule per plant, seed yield per plant and seed yield per m2. The length of the cotyledons had a negative and considerable correlation with length of vegetation of the examples (r=-0.625). The seed yield per plant has a positive and considerable correlation with number of capsule per plant (r=0.949). Absolute weight of the seed were positive significant correlation with length of internodes (r=0.561), while the percentage of the oil in seeds had a negative and considerable correlation with the height of the plants (r=-0.776). Also protein content recorded the highest negative association with absolute weight of the seeds followed by oil content of the seeds (r=-0.650; r=-0.654). The result which we obtain suggest that evaluated breeding lines of sesame could be valuable materials for breeding programs.
