Genetic improvement of sesame by induced mutations

Abstract

Full text: This project started in 1983 with assistance by IAEA at the Agricultural Department of Zulia University and with co-operation of FONALI. The main objective was the development of mutants with early ripening, between 85 and 95 days, which are drought and disease resistant. During experimentation in Portuguesa and Oriente, with materials produced under this project researchers identified about 20 mutants that show promise in terms of high yield, earliness and disease resistance. Among them are two mutants of the Piritu variety, P-10-7412 (early), and P-10-7412 (medium); four mutants of Criollo Falcon, CF 6-N3H494, CF 53-8874, CF 35-9306 and CF 25-9382, and a Venezuela 44 mutant, III-8408. They exhibit early flowering at 35-45 days, are resistant to the problematic leaf diseases Cylindrosporium and Cercospora, are resistant to Macrophomina, are drought tolerant and possibly also virus resistant. These new potential varieties coincide in ripening time, have a good appearance, and show little or no branching, good root development and a good average yield of at least 1000 kg/ha, with a potential of 1500-2000 kg/ha.
