A field experiment was conducted during kharif season of 2008 and 2009 (from august to october) to investigate
the behavior of crop plant Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) to RT (Relative turgidity), DPD (Diffusion pressure
deficit) and TI (Transpiration intensity). The plant species (Sesamum indicum L.) investigated has been found to
behave differentially with respect to relative turgidity, Diffusion pressure deficit and Transpiration intensity
during different hours of day and at different stages Viz. Vegetative, flowering and capsule stage.
