Summary

Simple, partial and multiple correlations, as well as regression coefficients, were worked out for 14 quantitative characters in a collection of 42 sesame varieties grown for two consecutive seasons. Total number of seeds per plant, number of pods per plant, plant height, height to the first pod and days to flowering and maturity, gave positive and highly significant correlation coefficients with yield and with one another. Partial regression and partial correlations indicated that the number of pods per plant and plant height are important yield-contributing characters.
