New bioassay method to find the allelopathic potential of wheat cultivars on rye ( Secale cereale L . ) seedlings

  author={Roghaye Mardani and Ali Reza Yousefi and Reza Fotovat and Mostafa Oveisi},
This experiment was done to develop a new simple and valid method for allelopathy studies and facilitating the use of image analysis in such research. A special transparent growth box containing black fabric enclosed inside was used to provide the seedbed to allow diffusion of allelochemichals from each side to opposite side. The allelopathy potential of 9-wheat cultivars was evaluated against rye (Secale cereale L.) to examine the suitability of this method. Images were captured every 12 h to…

The results demonstrated that usage of allelopathic behavior of wheat root exudates is an impressive method for biological control of wild mustard.

Wheat Allelopathy for Weed Control

Allelopathic cultivars of wheat may be grown to suppress weeds in the wheat crop and mulch of wheat can be applied for suppressing weeds both in wheat and other field crops.

Plant, Soil and Microbes

The use of pesticide in crops is meant to protect plants against harmful insects and increases crop yields. Pesticides are biologically active compounds, and an unintended consequence of its

Laboratory screening for allelopathic potential of wheat (Triticum aestivum) accessions against annual ryegrass (Lolium rigidum)

A new screening bioassay suitable for the efficient screening of a large number of wheat cultivars under laboratory conditions successfully separated the allelopathic effect from the competitive effect between wheat and ryegrass plants, and enabled the constant release and accumulation of allelochemicals from living wheat seedlings into the growth medium to affect the growth of ryEGrass.

Assessment of Allelopathic Potential of Root Exudate of Rice Seedlings

To determine the allelopathic potential of root exudate from early developmental stage of rice (Oryza sativa L), 6-d-old seedlings of eight cultivars were grown with alfalfa, cress and lettuce seedlings in Petri dishes under controlled condition.

Crop cultivars with allelopathic capability

To date, progress has been made in understanding the genetics of crop allelopathic activity, and successful genetic manipulation of this trait has also been demonstrated, however, much more research needs to be carried out in order to have a thorough understanding of the genetic control of allelopathy.

Screening methods for the evaluation of crop allelopathic potential

More concerted efforts are needed in screening crop germplasm before the development of allelopathic varieties occurs, because none of them can be precluded if conclusive evidence of crop allelopathy is to be established.

Varietal Differences of Root Systems in Winter Wheat Seedlings

Varietal differences in root system morphology in winter wheat were investigated using seed pack growth pouches in a greenhouse and the semi-dwarf gene in wheat that affects the plant type did not influence the spread of root system and total root length per plant.


The results indicate that wheat genotypes with high interference against weeds along with other desirable characters can be identified from the existing wheat varieties, or developed as “weed resistant” cultivars through hybridization or other genetic manipulation.

Selective regulation of germination and growth of annual weeds by crop residues

Residues from mature, harvested crops of sorghum, sunflower, and sunflower and field pea exhibited selective effects on weed germination and growth under field conditions, and weed species were inhibited by the presence of crop residue, the extent of inhibition being dependent on residue type.
