Abstract: In this study experiments was conducted to evaluate the effect of climate on sesame. Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is one of the world’s most imperative oil seed crops, impact of climate change mainly rainfall and temperature which is one of the foremost concerns. The objective of this work was to evaluate that effects of present climate on oil percent and protein percent as well as the morphology in the two Sesame seed PRACHI (Black seed) and HT-2 (White seed) based on the obtained results. The experiment was conducted in randomized block design with three replications during two successive kharif seasons 2014 and 2015. The monthly temperature and rainfall data were collected from metrological department of JNKVV, Jabalpur. The results showed that monthly temperature and rainfall had significantly effect on number of branches/plant, seed weight, seed yield/plant, oil content, protein content, carbohydrate content, oxalic acid content as well as free fatty acid.
