Ten strains of sesame and their 90 F1 were studied for phenotypic and genotypic correlations and path coefficient analysis. The seed yield showed positive association with number of primary branches, number of secondary branches, number of capsules/plant, 1000 seed weight and oil content. Path analysis indicated that the number of capsules/plant, 1000 seed weight and oil content are the most important yield contributing characters. If other characters are held constant the improvement in any of these characters will result in enhanced seed yield.
