The study included results from the application of subjective independent method for evaluating the susceptibility of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) for mechanized harvesting. This method tested progeny of different generations of Bulgarian selection resulting from repeated individual selects. It has been shown that the highest seed weight in capsule characterize those progeny who do not possess anatomical peculiarities of the capsule to hold the seeds to entering the threshing mechanism. Such forms are far genetically of the forms that retain the seeds and can be used in a breeding program in which to receive plants with higher yield and mechanisms (strong attached placenta or shape of the capsule), which holds the seeds to entering the threshing.

Key words: sesame; mechanized harvesting; subjective independent method; breeding
