Abstract :

In the present study allelopathic effect of Parthenium hysterophorus leaf aqueous extract on the seed germination of three pulses Cicer arietinum, Pisum sativum and Cajanus cajan was studied. The results shows directly proportion to the concentration of leaf extract. If leaf extracts concentration increases the percentage of germination decreases in all three seeds of pulses showing the allelopathic effect on seed germination. The root length and shoot length also showed the inhibitory effect. Maximum inhibitory effect was observed in root length and shoot length (537.31% and 658.57% over control) of Cajanus cajan and minimum inhibitory effect was observed in root length and shoot length (150.83% and 161.42% over control) of Pisum sativum

 

Key words: Parthenium hysterophorus, germination, allelopathy, Cicer arietinum, Pisum sativum and Cajanus cajan.
