ALLELOPATHIC EFFECT OF MYRISTICA FRAGRANS ON VIGNA RADIATA
Vinitha S. Babu*
The present study aimed to evaluate the allelopathic potential of Myristica fragrans against Vigna radiata. The parameters selected for evaluation include germination, height of seedling, vigour index and phytotoxicity. Control group was also maintained. The germination along with the shoot and root length were found to be reduced by the effect of concentrations of the test solution. The phytotoxicity and vigour index were also found to be varying.
Keywords: Allelopathy, Myristica fragrans, Vigna radiata, Phytotoxicity.
