Phyllody is a destructive disease of sesamum, Phyllody, Floral virescence and bushy appearance are the most common symptoms produced by phytoplama. Phytoplamal infection fromĀ  sesamum was detected by PCR technique. In the present investigation amplified product of expected size is 1.2 kb from phytoplasma infected samples by PCR by using primer pair with R16F2/R16R2 for specific for the 16S rDNA sequences of phytoplasma. The PCR based techniques are very much useful for eradication andĀ  produce pathogen free planting material of sesamum.

Key words: rDNA, PCR based techniques, Sesamum, Phyllody
