Generation mean analysis was carried out to study nature and magnitude of gene effects for yield and its yield component in ten crosses of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) The five parents vm (8L), X-79-1 (4L), EC351187 (8L), EC359007 (4L) and EZ351881 (4L), their F1, F2, F3 were studied for nine quantitative traits. The analysis showed that scales C and D are highly significant for seed yield/plant and all the eight yield components, indicating the predominance of non-allelic interactions or epistasis of Additive x Additive (i) and Dominance x Dominance (l) for almost all the nine characters in most of the crosses.
