The article presents basic information on the pheno menon of allelopathy and examples of its practical application in agriculture. Produced by plants or microorganisms (bact eria, fungi, actinomycetes) allelochemicals are als o u ed for the manufacture of alleloherbicides and bioherbicides. Thes e pesticides with increasing success are used for w eed control in crops. In addition, some allelochemicals (bialafos, leptos ermon) were used to produce synthetic active ingre dients of herbicides…

Influence of alcoholic extracts from Helianthus annnus L. roots on the photosynthetic activity of Sinapis alba L. cv. Barka plants

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of ethanol extracts from the roots of common sunflower, with 5 and 10% concentration, on the growth, photosynthetic activity of white mustard plants (Sinapis alba L. cv. Barka).

The Chemical Diversity of the Ascomycete Fungus Paecilomyces variotii

These natural products show that P. variotii can provide leading compounds for new drug discoveries, which may include herbicide agents, some of which are important in the agrochemical market.

Phytotoxic Effects of Cyanamide on Seed Germination and Seedling Growth of Weed and Crop Species

It is concluded that cyanamide has potential for use as a natural herbicide only in specific field systems of cyanamide-tolerant monocotyledonous crops accompanied by Cyanamide-sensitive dicotylingonous weeds.

Fleeting Beauty—The World of Plant Fragrances and Their Application

Some aspects of the fragrant substances of plant origin applied in the food industry and perfumery as well and some of their biocidal features will be mentioned as an arising “green” knowledge in agriculture.



Ecophysiological aspects of allelopathy

Five aspects of allelochemicals are discussed from an ecophysiological perspective: biosynthesis, modes of release, mode of action, detoxification and prevention of autotoxicity, and joint action of alleLochemicals.

Microbial metabolites as eco-friendly agrochemicals for the next millennium

Microbial secondary metabolites have potential as natural herbicides, either directly or as templates for bio-rational eco-friendly agrochemicals (allelochemicals) for integrated pest/weed management.

Where are the bioherbicides?

A number of niche situations will remain in which host-specific plant pathogens can be developed as bioherbicides, such as for parasitic weeds and narcotic plants, but more research should be conducted with virulent, broad host range organisms.

Allelopathic Substance Exuded from a Serious Weed, Germinating Barnyard Grass (Echinochloa crus-galli L.), Roots

Abstract. The allelopathy of a serious weed, barnyard grass (Echinochloa crus-galli L.), was investigated. Root exudates of young barnyard grass showed allelopathic effects and plant-selective

Allelochemicals from Plants as Herbicides

Allelochemicals representing numerous chemical groups have been isolated from over 30 families of terrestrial and aquatic plants. Some of the compounds also have been isolated from soil in quantities

Allelopathic potential of vegetative and flowering ragwort (Senecio jacobaea L.) plants against associated pasture species

According to this study, flowering plants have the potential to weaken pasture through allelopathy, and decomposition of above-ground litter appears as the most likely mechanism facilitating this.

Allelopathic Interactions and Allelochemicals: New Possibilities for Sustainable Weed Management

This review attempts to discuss all aspects of allelopathy for the sustainable management of weeds.

Difference in hydroxamic acid content in roots and root exudates of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and rye (Secale cereale L.): Possible role in allelopathy

Rye could potentially interfere with the growth of wild oats in nature and that this interference could be due to the release of Hx to the soil by way of roots, according to GC and HPLC analysis.

Investigating the Mode of Action of Natural Phytotoxins

The potential use of natural phytotoxins (including allelochemicals) to develop novel tools for weed management is enhanced by the elucidation of their modes of action, which may yield important clues to the specific physiological processes affected by the compounds and uncover novel mechanisms of action.

Influence of plant age on the allelopathic potential of nodding thistle (Carduus nutans L.) against pasture grasses and legumes

It is proposed that nodding thistle is allelopathic at two phases of its development, i.e. at the early bolting stage when the larger rosette leaves are decomposing and releasing soluble inhibitors, and at the stage when bolting plants are dying and releasing insoluble inhibitors.
