II. ALLELOPATHIC EFFECTS OF CROP PLANTS O N OTHER CROP PLANTS Theophrastus observed and described inhibitory effects of crop plants on other crop plants over 2000 years ago (see Chapter 1). In spite of this, no scientific research was done to verify such observations until early in the twentieth century. Schreiner and his associates published a series of papers starting in 1907 in which they presented evidence that exhaustion of soil by single-cropping is due to addition of growth inhibitors to the soil by certain crop plants (Schreiner and 42 2 .
The extracts were tested against seed gemination and seedling growth of bajra over a 48-hr period. Extracts of C. colocythis delayed seed germination of bajra but had little effect on final germination. Root and shoot growth were inhibited and root hair formation was suppressed. Citrullus lanatus was later demonstrated to also have allelopathic potential (Bhandari, and Sen, 1972). Horowitz and Friedman (1971) incubated dried subterranean organs of bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon) in light and heavy soil for 1, 2, or 3 months.
Hysterophorus consisted of clusters of Par thenium pollen. Pollen grains deposited in large numbers on leaves reduced the chlorophyll content of the leaves of certain test species. Prostrate knotweed (Polygonum aviculare), a bad weed in crops in many parts of the world, is also a pernicious weed in lawns in many countries, including the United States. It rapidly encroaches into bermudagrass lawns, and the ber mudagrass dies in patches of prostrate knotweed, whereas bermudagrass at the edges of the knotweed patches turns yellow.
