>>>I am setting up a lab from Vodopich and Moore. We are going to test
plants for allelopathic potential. The technique is to grind up plants
in a blender, put the slurry in a sterile petri dish and see if radish
seeds will sprout or not. The manual does not suggest any species to
use. Can anyone suggest potentially allelopathic species which I could
locate in and around Rochester, NY?<<<
Dr. Kim Coder, University of Georgia, has a wonderful article on alleopathy
in the June, 1999 issue of Arborist News, including methods of alleopathy
and a list of species.
