It is given proof of a method for assessing the susceptibility for mechanical harvesting of sesame genotypes. The method allows determination of appropriate way for mechanical harvesting of the seed, which can be with or without breaking of the capsules. The method has been applied to assess the susceptibility of six sesame genotypes, selected in IPGR- Sadovo, Bulgaria. The results are well concerted with those, obtained for the same genotypes at harvesting by grain harvester.

Key words: sesame, harvesting, mechanization, selection
