In a field trial at Hisar, Haryana, sesame cv. HT 1, HT 24 and HT 35 were sown on 1 July, 10 July (normal date), or 20 or 30 July. Oil and fatty acid contents did not differ significantly between cultivars. Total oil percentage was 47.9, 49.6, 48.1 and 45.3% with the 4 sowing dates as listed. Content of linoleic acid decreased, while oleic and stearic acid increased, as sowing was delayed. Palmitic acid content decreased at the last sowing date.
