ALLELOPATHIC EFFECTS OF WEED EXTRACTS ON CHLOROPHYLL CONTENT OF COWPEA (Vigna unguiculata L.) PLANT
Keywords:Allelochemicals, Allelopathic, Chlorophyll, Cowpea (Vigna ungiculata L.),, Weed
Allelopathy is a natural phenomenon in which one or more biochemical chemicals released by one organism influence the development, survival, and reproduction of other organisms. The targeted organism and the population can suffer beneficial (positive allelopathy) or harmful (negative allelopathy) impacts from these biological compounds. cowpea (Vigna ungiculata L.) plant treated with Chloris barbata L. and Phyllanthus niruri L. different extract (25%, 50%, 75% and 100%) compare with control. However, treatments with higher concentrations had positive effects on chlorophyll contents. The analyses revealed the presence of total chlorophyll content in the cowpea leaf extract, which were the highest chlorophyll amount in the 100% Phyllanthus niruri L. and lowest chlorophyll amount presence in 25% Chloris barbata L. It is highly recommended to establish crops in their early growth stages and they are producing commercial yields.
