Abstract:

The present study aims at evaluating the possible allelopathic potential of Moringa peregrine Forssk. on some growth attributes of two economically important food crops; Hordeum vulgare and Trigonellafoenum-graecum. The results indicate that Hordeumvulgareis more sensitive to Moringa peregrine leaves aqueous extract than Trigonellafoenum-graecum, and a concentration of  2.5% of that extract express the highest allelopathic effect on the degree of inhibition on seed germination of Hordeum vulgare. Radicle lengths of both recipient species were largely dependent on the concentration of the extracts of the donor species where it decreased with increasing the extract concentration. Highest reductions were achieved using 10% aqueous extracts. The effect was statistically significant at p ≤ 0.001 for most treatments.            In conclusion, the cultivation of Moringa peregrine accompanied with Hordeum vulgare and Trigonellafoenum-graecum as intercrops is not recommended for its dramatic effects on germination efficiency and growth.
