In the present study investigations were carried out on the symptomatology, transmission of this disease. Infected plants are showed characteristic symptoms of witch’s broom, bushy appearance. Under field condition, infected plants showed the most common characteristic symptom is phyllody. In the present studies, sesamum phyllody disease could not transmit through sap and seed. This indicates that the sesamum phyllody can not transmit through seed and sap. Out of the twenty inoculated plants with sap, no symptoms were observed on inoculated plants. Out of twenty sap inoculated plants, no one is showed positive reaction in PCR assay. Out of the twenty grafts inoculated plants, only seventeen inoculated plants are showed phyllody symptoms 45 days after inoculation. Out of the twenty inoculated plants, only seventeen grafts inoculated are showed positive reaction to the sesamum phyllody in PCR. Sesamum phyllody was transmitted successfully from infected plants to healthy plants through grafting

Key words: PCR, phyllody, Sesamum indicum, Phytoplasmas
