Reseeding of alfalfa is affected until autotoxic chemicals break down or are dispersed, often requiring a year or more. Bioassays of seed germination and early seedling growth, on agar medium in petri dishes, were conducted to evaluate autotoxic responses of 20 alfalfa germplasms to water-soluble extracts of alfalfa leaf tissue. Root length, 120 hr after placing imbibed seed on agar, was more sensitive to the autotoxin(s) than was hypocotyl length, germination speed, and final germination… Expand
Osmotic and Autotoxic Effects of Leaf Extracts on Germination and Seedling Growth of Alfalfa
TLDR
Inhibition was slowed mainly by osmotic factors whereas delayed seed germination and, especially, reduced root elongation were due mainly to toxic factors of the leaf extract. Expand
Regeneration failure of Pinus halepensis Mill.: The role of autotoxicity and some abiotic environmental parameters
TLDR
It is shown that autotoxicity is a potential functional process that could influence natural regeneration of P. halepensis, but field conditions studies are necessary. Expand
Allelopathy in Compositae Plants
Allelopathy plays an major role in agricultural management such as weed control, crop protection, and crop re-establishment. Compositae plants have potent allelopathic activity, and the activity isExpand
Allelopathy in Compositae plants. A review
TLDR
Allelopathy plays an major role in agricultural management such as weed control, crop protection, and crop re-establishment and the incorporation of allelopathic substances into agricultural management may reduce the use of pesticides and lessen environmental deterioration. Expand

Allelopathic Dynamics in Resource Plants
Allelopathy plays a key role in both natural and managed ecosystems, especially agroecosystems such as weed control, crop protection, and crop re-establishment. Allelopathic chemical(s) are movedExpand
Evaluating the potential of plant water extracts for growth improvement in maize
TLDR
Application of allelopathic plant water extracts at lower concentrations alone and in combination improved the growth and productivity of maize, however, fresh water extracts alone or in combination may be preferred. Expand
Alelopatia intra-específica de extratos aquosos de folhas e raízes de alfafa na germinação e no crescimento inicial de plântulas de dois materiais de alfafa: crioulo e melhorado
TLDR
The results suggest intra-specific variations on tolerance to the allelochemicals and a preferential production of them in the aerial part of the alfalfa plant, var. Expand

Differences in Autotoxicity among Seven Alfalfa Cultivars
TLDR
There may be genetic differences among cultivars for resistance to alfalfa autotoxicity, and that selection for low autot toxicity may be possible, according to the results of this study. Expand
EFFECTS OF EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES AND CONDITIONS ON BIOASSAY SENSITIVITY OF ALFALFA AUTOTOXICITY
TLDR
The results suggest that extracts from leaf samples that are oven-dried and sterilized by filtering or autoclaving can improve the consistency and precision of bioassay. Expand
Effects of light, growth media, and seedling orientation on bioassays of alfalfa autotoxicity.
TLDR
Root length at 120 h was the best indicator of autotoxic effects of alfalfa leaf extracts and a twofold range (P < 0.05) in tolerance was found in tolerance. Expand
Concentration Dependency and Stage of Crop Growth in Alfalfa Autotoxicity
TLDR
The objectives of this study were to determine the inhibition threshold of the water-soluble chemical compounds (autotoxic principle), and demonstrate that the inhibition of seed germination on early seedling growth of alfalfa is due to autotoxinic compounds from al falfa shoots and not from microbes. Expand
Biological Activity and Quantification of Suspected Allelochemicals from Alfalfa Plant Parts
TLDR
The type and amount of causative allelochemicals found in alfalfa plant parts were highly correlated with the results of the bioassay, indicating that the autotoxic effects ofAlfalfA plant parts significantly differed, and the concentrations and compositions of allelopathic compounds depended on the plant parts. Expand
Effect of Alfalfa Plant and Soil Extracts on Germination and Growth of Alfalfa
TLDR
The data indicate that alfalfa autotoxicity may mult from a release of one or more water-soluble compounds from al falfa leaf tissue. Expand
Rotation interval and pesticide effects on establishment of Alfalfa after Alfalfa
TLDR
Plant density and dry matter yield remained ranked according to rotation interval from the seeding year through the third year, suggesting an autoconditioning effect during establishment that was retained at the population level. Expand
Allelopathic effects of alfalfa
TLDR
Results suggest that there is a release of phytotoxic factors from the previous crop on reestablishing alfalfa, and exudates of different saponin level cultivars indicated that sap onin content is not the suspected phytOToxic factor. Expand
Biological activity and chemical isolation of root saponins of six cultivars of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.)
TLDR
The conclusion is that the amount, structure, and type of saponins present in alfalfa roots vary with time. Expand
Scanning Electron Microscopy for Studying Root Morphology and Anatomy in Alfalfa Autotoxicity
TLDR
Scanning electron microscopy techniques were used to study the morphology and anatomy of the roots inhibited by the shoot-aqueous-extract-inhibited, 5-d old WL-316' alfalfa roots, which revealed a 46% reduction in density and 54% reduced in length of root hairs compared to the control group. Expand
