In order to demonstrate that allelopathic interactions are occurring, one must, among other things, demonstrate that putative phytotoxins move from plant residues on or in the soil, the source, through the bulk soil to the root surface, a sink, by way of the rhizosphere. We hypothesized that the incorporation of phytotoxic plant residues into the soil would result in a simultaneous inhibition of seedling growth and a stimulation of the rhizosphere bacterial community that could utilize the… CONTINUE READING
