Abstract


Laboratory study was conducted to investigate allelopathic effects of seed aqueous extract of Pennisetum glaucum on seedling growth of three cereals; Avena sativa, Triticum durum and Hordeum vulgare Different levels of P. glaucum seed aqueous extracts concentrations (0%, 2%, 4%, 8% and 10%) were used to test its effect on the studied species. Results revealed significant allelopathic effects of seed aqueous extract of P. glaucum on radicle, coleoptile and total plant lengths. However, it was found that Avena sativa was the most susceptible and Triticum durum was the less sensitive on seed aqueous extract of Pennisetum glaucum.

Author Keywords: Pennisetum glaucum, allelochemicals, allelopathic, cereals, seeds.
