Watering Burpees Stringless bean in soil with leachates from pots containing P. hysterophorus markedly inhibited nodulation and root and shoot growth of bean plants. Similar leachates markedly inhibited growth of UP301 wheat plants also. Maximum exudation of inhibitors from the roots of P. hysterophorus occurred at the rosette and flowering stages, and the inhibitors remained active for about 30 days. 38 2 . M a n i p u l a t e d Ecosystems: Roles of A l l e l o p a t h y in A g r i c u l t u r e Roots or leaves were added to sandy loam soil in field plots in amounts equivalent to those actually measured in the field, 333 kg/ha of leaves and 216 kg/ha of roots.

Datta and Chatterjee (1980b) extended their previous work on the allelopathic potential of Polygonum orientale by testing aqueous extracts, leaf leachate, decaying leaves, and soil from a patch of the weed against five weedy species. Growth of all five test species was reduced in all tests, indicating that the inhibitors entered the substrate in various ways. As previously mentioned, aqueous extracts of Pennsylvania smartweed {Poly­ gonum pennsylvanicum) were shown by Le Tourneau et al. (1956) to inhibit seed germination and coleoptile and root growth of Mida wheat.

Fletcher and Renney found that the growth of tomato and barley was inhibited in soil naturally infested with knapweed pre­ viously or in soil with powdered knapweed residues added. Ether extracts (5 g dry weight of residue: 100 ml ether) were tested against seed germination and seedling growth of tomato and barley also to determine which of the three species of knapweed listed above was most inhibitory and to determine which organs were most toxic. The leaves contained a higher concentration of the toxic mate­ rial than did other plant parts, and the order of inhibition of the three species from greatest to least was C.
