ALLELOPATHIC STUDIES ON AGROFORESTRY SPECIES EFFECT OF LEAF LEACHATES ON SEEDLING GROWTH OF CROP PLANTSN.S. PHILOMINA AND A. MUNIKUMARI
A study was undertaken to find out the allelopathic effects of common trees viz., Eucalyptus camaldulensis, Acacia nilotica, Derris indica, Cassia siamea and Sesbania grandiflora raised on field bunds as an agroforestry practices in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh.
