Seed yield of sesame per plant was high and positively correlated with capsule density, flowering date, number of capsules on the main stem and total number of capsules per plant. Seed yield per plant was negatively correlated with seed index (weight of 1000 seeds) and seed yield per capsule. Path-coefficient analysis of data revealed that number of capsules per pant had the greatest direct effect on seed yield in both seasons of experimentation. Flowering date showed the highest indirect effect on seed yield.
