Science is basically a descriptive and experimental machine. It observes nature, constructs hypotheses, plans experiments and proposes theories. the speculation is rarely reflected because the 'final truth', yet continues to be ever topic to differences, alterations and rejections. The technology of allelopathy in a similar fashion has emerged, and exists on an identical footing; our endeavour may be to maintain it clean and leading edge with addition of more moderen in­ formation and ideas with the rejection of older principles and antiquated options. up to now few many years encouraging effects were got in numerous points of allelopathic researches. notwithstanding, as well as carrying on with efforts in most of these instructions, consistent makes an attempt are to be made to explain the mechanics of allelopathic job in molecular phrases and to find methods and potential to use it for the welfare of mankind. We suppose that multidisciplinary efforts are the single instrument to accomplish this aim. it's the wish of the editors that this e-book will function a rfile which identifies an built-in process, wherein examine either to appreciate and take advantage of allelopathy will be performed. the current quantity arose out of an try to collect eminent scientists in allelopathy to explain their paintings, of a hugely different nature, less than one title.

229-44. CHAPTER 3 A conceptual framework for assessing allelochemicals in the soil environment H. H. 1 INTRODUCTION There has been a surge of interests in recent years on the phenomenon of allelopathy, the chemical agents involved in allelopathy, and the role of allelopathy in crop production (Chou and Waller, 1983; Rice, 1984; Thompson, 1985; Waller, 1987). Studies have generally concentrated either on the symptoms and severity of the adverse effects on affected plants or on the production and identification of the allelochemicals from producing organisms.

It was suggested that the allelopathy results from (1) sufficient walnut biomass to contribute substantial amounts of juglone to soil, and (2) wet soil that greatly restricts the aerobic metabolism of juglone by soil microorganisms, allowing it to build up to toxic concentrations. Dawson and Seymour (1983) reported that a 10- 4 M concentration of juglone completely inhibited growth of a Frankia isolate from nodules of Alnus rubra.
