Technology for growing sesame

Sesame refers to thermophilic plants. The seeds start at a soil temperature of 15-16 °C. The shoots die in frost from -0,5 to -1 °C. The optimal temperature for the growth and development of sesame is 25-30 °C. When the temperature drops to 12-15 °C, plant growth stops.

Makes high demands on moisture and nutrients. drought resistant. Black earth, slightly loamy and sandy, fertile soils that are free of weeds are best. A light loving plant for a short day.
