Abstract:

A laboratory experiment was conducted to assess the allelopathic effect of aqueous extracts of sorghum and sunflower on germinating seedlings of Phalaris minor and wheat. 10% (w/v) aqueous extracts of sorghum and sunflower were applied on the seed of Phalaris minor and wheat and the parameters like germination percent, relative germination ratio, speed of germination, mean germination time, days to 50% germination were calculated. In all the calculated parameters it was found that the aqueous extracts of both sorghum and sunflower are highly allelopathic to Phalaris minor and they have a very little effect on wheat. Both sorghum and sunflower aqueous extracts significantly reduced the germination of Phalaris minor as compared to control (distilled water), but sunflower was more allelopathic than sorghum with 85.5% of germination inhibition.
