Physiology of stressed crops; v.3: The stress of allelochemicals.


Physiology of stressed crops; v.3: The stress of allelochemicals.

Gupta, U.S.

Science Publishers, Inc.


195 pages




Gupta (crop and soil sciences, U. of Georgia, Athens) begins his treatment of this newer area of research by tracing the derivation of allelopathy from the Greek words for mutual and harm. Chemicals released by certain plants are among the stressors on other plants and in some cases, even suicidally on themselves. He describes specific plant interactions, and explains that allelochemicals have a useful application in producing bio- herbicides for weed control. The intended audience includes advanced- level students in crop-related fields, progressive farmers, planners, and crop managers. The book is distributed in the US by Enfield.
