Sesame is an important oilseed crop not only in India also across the world. Studying nature of inheritance of sesame plant characteristics is essential for planning effective breeding programme. The present investigation was conducted at the Agricultural Research Station, J.A.U., Amreli and Department of Seed Science and Technology, College of Agriculture, Sagadividi Farm, J.A.U., Junagadh, Gujarat. These 40 hybrids along with a two checks, G.Til-2 and G.Til-3 were evaluated in a four environments were created through different time and location for sowing during summer 2016. The earliest hybrid over better parent was AT-306 x RT-54, AT-322 x RT-54, AT-307 x RT-54, AT-307 x G.Til-10 and AT-253 x RT-54 in days to flowering in pooled. The crosses AT-306 x AT-285 and AT-306 x AT-285 recorded the highest desirable standard heterosis over G.Til-2 and G.Til-3 in days to maturity. The best hybrids AT-319 x AT-285, AT-322 x AT-285, AT-307 x AT-285, AT-319 x G.Til-10 and AT-306 x AT-285 exhibited significant and positive heterobeltiosis for seed yield per plant and its components. Such crosses could be exploited further for earliness and seed yield advancement in sesame through regional multilocational testing over different environments.
