Abstract

Phytotoxic effect of Lantana camara leaf, stem and root aqueous extracts on chlorophyll contents of Parthenium hysterophorus in seedling stage.

Abstract

Chlorophyll contents of Parthenium hysterophorus were inhibited with the treatment of different concentrations of leaf, stem and root aqueous extracts of Lantana camara. Phytotoxicity was directly proportional to the concentration of the extracts and higher concentration had the stronger inhibitory effect. Maximum reduction in chlorophyll contents was observed in 100% aqueous leaf extract. Minimum reduction in chlorophyll contents was observed in 25% aqueous root extract.
