Abstract:
Chemical communication between two nearby plants causing unpropitious effect on germination and development of one plant species or microorganisms is described as allelopathy. Such interactions and mechanism of phytochemicals resulting plant growth inhibition have not completely known yet. Chloroform and acetone fraction of crude extract of different parts viz. stem, root and seeds of Albizia lebbek were examined for their growth inhibitory potential against germination of radish seeds. The recent frontier is the usage of allelochemicals as substitute of precarious weedicides as they do not impart hazardous impact on environment. So the comparative approach of growth inhibitory potential of chloroform and acetone fractions of stem, root and seeds of Albizia lebbek on germination of radish seeds is being reported in this research paper.
