Allelopathic effect of leaf extract of Morus alba L. on germination and seedling growth of some pulses

Allelopathic effect of leaf extract of Morus alba L. on germination and seedling growth of some pulses

Range Management and Agroforestry 21(2): 164-169

A laboratory experiment was conducted to study the allelopathic effect of different concentrations of leaf leachate of Morus alba on germination and seedling growth of peas (Pisum sativum), lentil (Lens culinaris) and faba beans (Vicia faba). Treatments consisted of five concentrations of leaf extracts (control, 25, 50, 75 and 100%) diluted with distilled water. In peas, maximum germination of 93% was attained with 25 and 50% concentration of leaf leachate.
