Abstract

ABSTRACT:
In the present study, the allelopathic effect of Parthenium hysterophorus leaf
extract  on  the  seed  germination    of  Cyamopsis  tetragonoloba  was  studied.It
was  found  that  there  was  total  inhibition  of  germination  in  the  acetone  leaf
extract. The root –shoot length decreases with increase in the concentration of
aqueous leaf extract.
KEY  WORDS:  Allelopathic  effect,  aqueous  extract,  Parthenium
hyestrophorous,Cyamopsis tetragonoloba.
