Demonstration of Improved Sesame Varieties (Sesamum indicum L.) with Improved Production Technologies on Small Scale Farms at Qola Tebmien and Tanqua Abergelle Destrict, Ethiopia

Hintsa Meresa


The demonstration was conducted in low land samre, nebar hanet, S/samre and Dabao, Q/Tembienagbe woreda. S/samre and Q/Tembienagbe woreda is found in the S/east and  central zone of Tigray regional state respectively.Ten interested farmers were selected from two location  in collaboration with extension workers. All demonstration plots was fertilized uniformly with 50 kg Urea and 100 kg Diammonium Phosphate (DAP). Full dose of P was applied at planting time and  half of N was applied at first weeding(7-14) days and the remaining half was side dressed at second weeding(30-35) days. All other cultural practices were applied as per standard recommendations for the crop. During farmers’ field assessment, farmers were evaluating the performance of the technology with researcher by comparing with local practice in terms of  management practices, days to maturity and yield. Accordingly, the average yield of humera-1 was 5.063 qt/ha than setit-1(4qt/ha) and  local 3.5qt/ha. Due to that humera-1 is more interested and accepted by farmers, so  this should be scaled out in to other similar agro-ecology of the area.
