Adaptability Study of Improved Sesame (Sesamumindicum L.) Varieties at Harari Region

Habte Berhanu


Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is an important oilseed crop in the tropics and subtropics. Field trials were conducted during the main rainy seasons of 2017, and 2019 at Harari regional state of Kile kebele with the objective to study the adaptability of released sesame varieties. Twelve improved varieties of sesame including standard check (Obsa) were used as planting materials. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Analysis of variance showed that significant variation was observed among the varieties for days to flowering, days to maturity, number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, plant height and grain yield. Accordingly, Chalasa, Srinka-2 Srinka-1and Hirhir varieties found to be best performing varieties among the test varieties and hence were recommended for further demonstration and scaling up in the study area and similar agro-ecologies.
