Abstract

A field experiment was conducted to determine the effect of fertiliser N on seed fatty acid composition (palmitic,
stearic, oleic and linoleic acid content) of sesame. Nitrogen (N) application had a profound effect on the fatty acid
composition. An increase in N application from 0 to 45 kg/ha increased linoleic acid but reduced oleic acid and palmitic acid contents.
