The term ‘Allelopathy’ was coined by Professor Hans Molisch in 1937. It includes both inhibitory and stimulatory effects of plants on each other including microorganisms. Most of the research in this field has been conducted in developed countries during the last 30-40 years. The first English Book ‘Allelopathy’ written by Dr. E.L. Rice was published in 1974 and thereafter, many books have appeared on its various aspects and thousands of research papers on various aspects of allelopathy have been published. But till now, there is no Comprehensive Bibiliography on Allelopathy. Besides, till to day, This indicates the great interest World over in this new discipline, because of its importance in modern Sustainable Agriculture. It has been found that Allelopathy offers great potential to (a) increase agricultural production (food grains, vegetables, fruits, forestry), (b) to decrease harmful effects of modern agricultural practices [multiple cropping, leaching losses from N fertilizers, indiscriminate use of pesticides (weedicides, fungicides, insecticides, nematicides), tolerant/resistant biotypes in pest] on soil health/ productivity and environment and (c) to maintain soil productivity and a pollution free environment for our future generations. It is likely that in the near future allelopathy will be used in crop production, crop protection, agroforestry and agrohorticultural practices in developed and developing countries. Allelopathy may become one of the strategic sciences to reduce the environmental pollution and to increase agricultural production in Sustainable Agriculture of the 21st Century. Thus, it is now receiving more attention from agricultural and bioscientists.

In spite of the fact, that now much information is available on different aspects of Allelopathy, but there is no Comprehensive Bibiliography on Allelopathy, which provides complete and updated information about the published allelopathy literature at the International level. Allelopathy scientists interested in finding literature on a particular aspect have to consult several Books, Journals, Annual Reports and Magazines etc. This results in wastage of valuable time and energy of the scientists. Although such information may be available to the Western World through electronic media, but this facility will not be available to thousands of allelopathy scientists in the under developed countries, where the importance of allelopathy is greater. In view of this, Prof. S.S.Narwal has prepared this ANNORTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF ALLELOPATHY, which has taken more than 10- Years, valuable time and energy to complete this herculean task. It has 10724 Abstracts in 1838 Pages (A4 size Pages), hence, it is very expansive and to Print and send by Post, thus, prepared in PDF Edition. It is devided in 5- Volumes. It is the first Comprehensive Bibiliography on Allelopathy. It includes References up to 2012 and will be up dated Annually with latest literature. Its main aim is to make available Allelopathy Literature to the bonafide scientists/students worldwide for their scientific use. In 1989, I visited Department of Allelopathy, Central Botanical Garden, Kiev, Ukaraine. There I saw large collection of Allelopathy literature of Prof. A.M. Grodzinsky, very prominent Internationally renowned Allelopathy Scientist. There I first conceived idea to prepare the Bibliography. After return from Kiev in 1990, I established Indian Society of Allelopathy and organized First International Conference on Allelopathy in 1992 with Prof. E.L. Rice as Chief Guest. In 1992, Dr. V.V. Rao gave me 150 Reprints on Allelopathy. Then Prof. MAB Mallik, USA sent me Reprints from Prof. Rice collection after Prof. Rice death. In 2000 Prof. Rick Willis, Department of Botany, University of Melbourne invited me to his Lab. to prepare this Bibiliography, which laid the Foundation of this Book.

CONTENTS: All the References (10724) are numbered continuously, listed year-wise and within the year Alphabetically. Each reference includes Author(s), Year, Title of paper, Abstract, Name of Journal, Volume Number, full pages. If published in Book/Report/Dissertation, the full details of Publication viz., Author/Editor, Title, Name of Publisher, Place of Publication are given.

This Book will be very useful for the allelopathy scientists and graduate students in agriculture (Agronomists, Entomologists, Nematologists, Plant Pathologists, Horticulturists, Plant Breeders, Agroforesters, Soil Scientists) and biosciences (Biochemists, Organic Chemists, Microbiologists, Limnologists), Environmentalists and Farmers, as well as organizations engaged in sustainable agriculture and organic agriculture.

Soil sickness is important area of research worldwide, however, little research has been done because it is complex phenomenon and caused by many factors (nutrients exhaustion, deterioration of soil structure, physical and chemical properties, development of phytopathogenic microflora, one-sided development of some groups of soil microflora, pest’s multiplication (nematodes), changes in pH, accumulation of phytotoxic substances in soil). This field did not receive the attention it deserved, however, in past few years, there is new impetus on soil sickness research mainly on autotoxicity of crops and trees. Hence Allelopathy Journal published special issue on soil sickness [Guest Editors: B. Politycka, Poland and J.Q. Yu, China Volume 18(1) 2006]. Till now there is only one book, A.M. Grodzinsky (1979). Allelopathy in Soil Sickness (Russian, English translated 2006). This book on methodology may initiate more research on soil sickness.

The book is divided in 2 sections: Section I. Abiotic factors, has 5 Chapters (Soil sickness: An overview, Plant Nutrients, Soil Salinity and Acidity, Soil Compaction, Soil Organic Matter), Section II. Biotic factors has 9 Chapters (Phytotoxic Substances, Soil Microorganisms and Soil-Borne Diseases, Soil Enzymes, Insects in Agrosystems, Plant Parasitic Nematodes, Weed Studies, Soil Sickness and Productivity, Morpho-anatomical changes in crops under soil sickness, Soil Sickness in Forestry)

This book will serve as ready reference in laboratory/greenhouse/field studies and in class room. It helps to solve many problems of soil sickness. It will be useful for UG and PG students pursing allelopathic work at laboratory, greenhouse and field levels and to biologists and ecologists. We have tried to provide appropriate solutions to the problems of soil sickness. The users of this book can select suitable methods, according to the available facilities.

During evolution, the plants developed new biosynthetic pathways to produce secondary metabolites (flavonoids, alkaloids, cyanogenic glycosides, glucosinolates, phenolics and tannins) known as allelochemicals. These provide adaptative advantages to plants for survival against herbivores, pests (insects, nematodes, pathogens, weeds), environmental stresses and other plants. They can be considered as the chemical language of plants, which continuously changes and increases in complexity with their evolution. Allelopathy phenomenon refers to inhibitory or stimulatory biochemical interactions between the plant-plants, plant-predators and plant-pathogens mediated by plant allelochemicals released into the environment as leachates, volatiles, root exudates and decomposition of plant residues. The allelochemicals affects numerous biochemical reactions/metabolic processes (photosynthesis and respiration etc) in plants and such action may be determined at molecular structural, biochemical, physiological and ecological levels. This book aims to provide an overview of structure, origin and mode of release of plant allelochemicals and their biological roles in allelopathic interactions. The book contains Introduction and 11 Chapters,Chapter I: Allelochemicals, describes main groups of secondary metabolites involved in allelopathic interactions.Chapter 2: Plant-Environment Interactions, deals with molecular inter/intraspecific interactions between the plants.Chapter 3: Allelopathy, is an overview of concept and definition of Allelopathy Science. Chapter 4: Releasing Mechanisms, describes modes of release of allelochemicals from donor plants.Chapter 5: Bioassay, explains bioassay currently used in allelopathy research.Chapter 6: Localization and Bioactivity Range, describes how organ, ontogenic state and cellular compartmentalization affects the allelochemicals production and accumulation etc. Chapter 7: Environmental Modulation, describes how the environmental factors influence the allelochemicals production/release from donor plants and response of receptor plants. Chapter 8: Mechanisms of Action, explains current knowledge about the allelochemicals affects on growth and development of receptor plants. Chapter 9: Impact on Ecosystems, describes how the allelochemicals affects the natural and managed ecosystems.Chapter 10: Applications of Allelopathic Interactions, provides current uses of allelopathy in agriculture.Chapter 11: Separation and Identification of Allelochemicals, explains general tips for phytochemical studies in allelopathy research levels. It will be very useful to Students and Researchers in Biology Agriculture, Organic Chemistry and other Plant Sciences.

This is the first book on ‘Coactions and Competition in Plants’ worldwide. It was translated from Czech language, because the English is read in most countries of the world, hence, the allelopathy scientists would be able to know the phenomenon of coactions and competition in plants. The allelopathic interactions in coactions and competition in higher plants greatly influences the productivity of field crops, fruits trees and forest trees in natural and managed ecosystems. In tropical and subtropical countries, many crops are grown in crop mixtures, owing to their several advantages. Likewise, in natural forests, many tree spp. grow together, besides many herbs and shrubs grow underneath their canopy. Now due to increased human population, the farmers to meet the diverse requirements of their families, grows several crops with trees, called Agroforestry. However, little information is available about the allelopathic interactions in coactions and competition in the above agro-ecosystems. Worldwide, it is the only book available on these important aspects. This book consists of 8 Chapters viz., (i) Basic principles, (ii) Competition, (iii) Secondary compounds, (iv) Non-contact coactions, (v) Antagonistic contact coactions, (vi) Synergic contact coactions, (vii) Conclusions, (viii) References and Appendix. It is hoped, that this book will provide inspiration and in-depth knowledge of the coactions and competition in higher plants.

This book will be very useful for the Researchers, Teachers and Students of Biosciences (Plant Ecology, Plant Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology) and Agricultural Sciences (Agronomy, Forestry etc.).

This is the first English translation of the classic Book Allelopathy in Soil Sickness, the first Book on Soil Sickness from Russian language. It was translated because English is read in most countries of the world, hence, the allelopathy scientist would be able to know the phenomenon of Soil Sickness. In the past this problem was mainly reported from Temperate countries of Europe, USA etc. But now, this problem is also increasing in the tropical and subtropical countries due to multiple cropping systems e.g. rice-wheat, rice- rice- rice, sugarcane ratoons, vegetable based cropping systems etc in several Asian countries. It is hoped this book will provide inspiration and in-depth knowledge of the complex problem of Soil Sickness. This book consists of 9 chapters viz., (i). History of soil sickness, (ii). Soil sickness in field crops, (iii). Soil sickness in fruit trees, (iv). Soil sickness in flower cultivation, (v). Chemical nature of toxins, (vi). Physiological and biochemical interactions of toxins, (vii). Role of microorganisms in soil sickness and to restore soil fertility, (viii). Determining allelopathic soil toxicity, (ix). Conclusions and (x). References.

Prof. Grodzinsky was an outstanding Allelopathy scientist, who is called "Father of Allelopathy in USSR". He worked on Allelopathy for 23 years (1965-1988). He edited 16 Books on Allelopathy (1965-1987, highest number of Books edited by any other scientist Worldwide) and authored more than100 research papers. In world, he established the first Department of Allelopathy, Central Botanical Garden, Kiev, Ukraine.

The term Allelopathy was coined by Professor Hans Molisch in 1937 and includes both inhibitory and stimulatory effects of plants on each other including microorganisms. Most of the research in this field has been conducted in developed countries during the last 30-40 years. The first book on Allelopathy written by Dr. E.L. Rice was published in 1974 and thereafter, many books have appeared on its various aspects, but till now, there is no Allelopathy Data Base. Besides, during this period, thousands of research papers on various aspects of allelopathy have been published. This indicates the great interest World over in this new discipline, because of its importance in modern Sustainable Agriculture. It has been found that Allelopathy offers great potential to (a) increase agricultural production (food grains, vegetables, fruits, forestry), (b) to decrease harmful effects of modern agricultural practices [multiple cropping, leaching losses from N fertilizers, indiscriminate use of pesticides (weedicides, fungicides, insecticides, nematicides), tolerant/resistant biotypes in pest] on soil health/ productivity and environment and (c) to maintain soil productivity and a pollution free environment for our future generations. It is likely that in the near future allelopathy will be used in crop production, crop protection, agroforestry and agrohorticultural practices in developed and developing countries. Allelopathy may become one of the strategic sciences to reduce the environmental pollution and to increase agricultural production in Sustainable Agriculture of the 21st Century. Thus, it is now receiving more attention from agricultural and bioscientists.

In spite of the fact, that now much information is available on different aspects of Allelopathy, but there is no Allelopathy Data Base which provides complete and updated information about the published allelopathy literature at the International level. Allelopathy scientists interested in finding literature on a particular aspect have to consult several Books, Journals, Annual Reports and Magazines etc. This results in wastage of valuable time and energy of the scientists. Although such information may be available to the Western World through electronic media, but this facility will not be available to thousands of allelopathy scientists in the under developed countries, where the importance of allelopathy is greater. In view of this, the International Allelopathy Foundation has established the Prof. Rice Allelopathy Data Base (RADB) in the loving memory of Prof. Elroy Leon Rice, Norman, Oklahoma, USA popularly known as Father of Allelopathy. Its main aim is to make available Allelopathy Literature (Photocopies of Reprints, Abstracts) to the bonafide scientists/students worldwide for their scientific use.

Contents: All the Reprints (about 5500) available in the Data Base are numbered continuously, listed year-wise and within the year Alphabetically. Each entry includes full Reference about the publication viz., Author(s), Year, Title of paper, Name of Journal, Volume Number, full pages. If published in book, full details of book viz., Author/Editor, Title, Name of Publisher, Place of Publication are given. Subject Index is given at the end.

This Book will be very useful for the allelopathy scientists and graduate students in agriculture (agronomists, entomologists, nematologists, plant pathologists, horticulturists, plant breeders, agroforesters, soil scientists) and biosciences (biochemists, organic chemists, microbiologists and limnologists), environmentalists and farmers, as well as organizations engaged in sustainable agriculture and organic agriculture. This book will serve as Bibliography.

This is the first rare and classic book on Allelopathy (published 1937) in German language. It provides the background about the birth of Science of Allelopathy, the scientific explanation of this phenomenon, hitherto known only to few people knowing German language. This book was out of print since last many years. Presently allelopathy research is being done in most countries of the World, but majority of these scientists could not read this book due to its German language. Hence, English speaking scientists could not make use of the allelopathic principles and findings explained in this book. Therefore, the main aims of the translation were: I) to provide an opportunity for current allelopathy scientists Worldwide to read Molisch's early classic research, II) to derive inspiration from it, III) to take cues from the methodologies used for improving the ongoing research and IV) to utilize its principles in their current research programmes.

This book reviews the old research findings (before 1930) in the fields related to allelopathy. Prof. Molisch for the first time, studied the effects of numerous plants spp. and their plant parts viz., roots, shoots, leaves, flowers, fruits on the seed germination, seedling growth and maturity of fruits in several plant spp. The methodology followed and the salient findings of more than 100 laboratory, greenhouse studies have been described through Photographs and Tables. Besides, the book also narrates the story behind the nomenclature of term "Allelopathy".

The rapidly growing human population has increased the dependence on fossil fuel based agrochemicals, such as fertilizers and pesticides, to produce the required agricultural and forestry products. This has exerted a great pressure on the non-renewable fossil fuel resources, which cannot last indefinitely. Agrochemicals not only pollute the environment, but also the pests become resistant to pesticides. Thus the present agricultural practices are exploitive of natural resources and are damaging the fauna, flora and agroecosystems. One safe alternative to overcome these problems is the use of allelopathy to sustain development in ecological agriculture and forestry and maintain a clean environment for our future generations.

This book is the Proceedings of the III International Congress, Allelopathy in Ecological Agriculture and Forestry, held on August 18-21, 1998 at the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka, India. It provides an updated status of current allelopathy research in various leading countries, with the overall aim to develop new technologies for ecological agriculture and forestry in the 21st century. To date, no book on ecological agriculture has discussed these aspects, hence, it is the first time that such information is available. The chapter contributors are leaders in their fields and all chapters have been peer reviewed by international referees.

Editor: S.S. Narwal, Department of Agronomy, Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar-125 004, India.

The term allelopathy was coined by Molisch in 1937 and includes both inhibitory and stimulatory effects of plants on each other including microorganisms. Most of the research in this field has been conducted in developed countries during the last 30- 40 years. The first Book on Allelopathy written by Dr. E.L. Rice was published in 1974 and thereafter, many Books have appeared on its various aspects but none deal with the current status of research. Besides, during this period, thousands of research papers on various aspects of allelopathy have been published. This indicates the great interest World over in this new discipline because of its importance in modern sustainable agriculture. However till now, no book is available about the National status of allelopathy research in various countries, therefore, this book has been published.

This volume contains information about the country-wise status of allelopathy research to provide an over view of research already done. It would be valuable to academicians and researchers and aims (a) to improve the class room teaching, (b) to provide a comprehensive update of allelopathy research Worldwide, (c) to serve as bench mark for conducting advanced research and (d) to avoid repetition of research; thereby saving valuable time, energy and money resources of scientists. The book provides update status of allelopathy research in 18 leading Countries of the World.

Allelopathy_Update-Vol.2._Basic_&_Applied

Editor: S.S. Narwal, Department of Agronomy, Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar-125 004, India

Allelopathy offers great potential to (a) increase agricultural production (food grains, vegetables, fruits, forestry), (b) to decrease harmful effects of modern agricultural practices [multiple cropping, leaching losses from N fertilizers, indiscriminate use of pesticides (weedicides, fungicides, insecticides, nematicides), tolerant/resistant biotypes in pest] on soil health/ productivity and on environment and (c) to maintain soil productivity and a pollution free environment for our future generations. In the near future, allelopathy may be used in crop production, crop protection, agroforestry and agrohorticultural practices in developed and developing countries. Allelopathy may become one of the strategic sciences to reduce the environmental pollution and to increase agricultural production in Sustainable Agriculture of the 21st Century. Thus, it is now receiving more attention from agricultural and bioscientists.

Most of the allelopathic research has been conducted on basic aspects. The research on applied aspects is gaining attention since 1980's mainly in Agricultural Institutes. Now much information is available on both Basic and Applied aspects of Allelopathy, but no Book provides complete information regarding the current status of allelopathy research at the International level. Allelopathy scientists interested in knowing this, have to consult several Books etc. Although such information may be available to the Western World through electronic media, but this facility will not be available to thousands of allelopathy scientists in the under developed countries, where the importance of allelopathy is greater.

This volume contains updated information on various basic, applied and pests control aspects of allelopathy, for pests management with minimum use of present pesticides (weedicides, insecticides, nematicides and fungicides), to reduce environmental pollution and to improve productivity for sustainability of agriculture and forestry. This Book aims (a) to provide a comprehensive update of allelopathy research Worldwide, (b) to serve as a bench mark for planning of future research, (c) to act as reference Book for the students, (d) to prevent repetition type of research in different parts of the World, (e) to improve agricultural production through use of allelopathic strategies and (f) to reduce environmental pollution by minimising the use of presents pesticides. More than 22 scientists from different countries have contributed 16 Chapters to the Book.

Neem is a versatile tree of Indian origin. Since ancient times, its various plant parts have been used to control domestic insects, stored grain pests, crop pests and as human and livestock medicine. Recently, these properties have been attributed to hundreds of chemicals present in this Golden tree. Being a storehouse of chemicals, with multiple uses and adaptability to diverse habitats and climatic conditions, the developed countries have shown keen interest in this tree. Besides, the present day pesticides and nitrogen fertilizers pose several problems viz., environmental pollution and related health hazards in human and livestock, development of resistance in organisms to pesticides and death of beneficial insects. While neem chemicals have shown potential as pesticides and as nitrification inhibitors and do not pose these problems; moreover, neem cake is used as manure. Therefore, keeping in view the importance of this tree, a session of Neem in Current Context was held at the International Symposium on Allelopathy in Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry and Environment, New Delhi during September 6-8, 1994. There were 20 presentations on neem, during this Conference. It was decided to prepare a separate book on neem based on the updated world literature from the presentations made at the symposium as well as a few others, from well known neem researchers.

In the recent past, many books have been published on neem, but this book is unique in following ways: (a) it deals with improving production technology of this wonder tree, (b) it provides current status of neem research in production of agricultural and horticultural crops and (c) the book outlines Recommendations on the use of neem and its products in crop production and plant protection

Sustainable Agriculture aims at long term maintenance of natural resources and agricultural productivity with minimal adverse impact on environment. It emphasizes the optimal crop production with minimal dependence on agrochemicals (fertilizers, pesticides) and substituting them with sustainable allelopathic strategies, which could maintain the productivity over long periods. Thus for future sustainability, crop production must minimise use of agrochemicals and use allelopathy and other practices. As allelopathy is new field of science, hence, its research methodology is scantily available. Therefore, during the International Conference on Allelopathy in Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry and Environment in 1994 at New Delhi, India one session was devoted each to Field Observations and Methodology of Allelopathy. In these sessions, 81 presentations were made, of these 22 have been included in this book.

Indiscriminate use of pesticides for pest (insects, nematodes, pathogens, weeds) control has resulted in serious ecological and environmental problems viz., (a) increasing development of resistance in organisms to pesticides, (b) shifts in pests species, the minor pests have become dominant and their control needs higher doses of most toxic pesticides, (c) greater environmental pollution and (d) toxic residues of pesticides in agricultural commodities cause serious health hazards in human and livestock. Therefore, serious ecological questions about the reliance on pesticides for pest control have been raised World-wide. Crops are being grown since ancient times without damage to the environment but the indiscriminate use of pesticides during the short span of last 50 years have raised serious doubts about their continuous use. Studies have shown that allelopathic strategies and allelochemicals may help in pest control, besides, these are free from problems associated with present herbicides. That is why, it is important area of research in most countries of the World.

In view of great importance of allelopathy in future pest management strategies, Indian Society of Allelopathy, Hisar, India organised an International Conference on allelopathy in Sustainable Agriculture, Forestry and Environment in 1994, at New Delhi. Out of the six technical sessions of the Conference, one was devoted to Allelopathy in Pest Management in which 47 presentations were made. This book is proceedings of the conference, thus contains seventeen chapters by eminent scientists and provides upto date information.

ALLELOPATHY IN AGRICULTURE AND FORESTRY

Editors: Shamsher S. Narwal, Department of Agronomy, Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar-125 004, India
Patrick Tauro, Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar- 125 004, India

The allelopathy research in the early years was mainly done in field crops. Later on it was observed that trees also influence the plant density, growth and development of plant spp. growing under its canopy and even outside the tree canopy. Therefore, allelopathy research in forestry started much later after 1970, now it is current area of research in developed countries. Till now not much information is available about the allelopathic interactions in agroforestry systems, which is major practice is tropics and subtropics. It is likely that allelopathic research in forestry and agroforestry may help in overcoming several problems related to allelopathy and thus increasing their productivity.

Now some information is available on both Allelopathy in Agriculture and Forestry, but there is no book which provides complete information in this regard. Allelopathy scientists interested in knowing these aspects, have to consult several books etc. Although such information may be available to the western World through electronic media, but this facility will not be available to thousands of allelopathy scientists in the under developed countries, where the importance of allelopathy is greater. In view of this, the present book has been published to provide an insight into the allelopathic interactions and problems in Agriculture and Forestry ecosystems, in different countries.

This book is Proceedings of First National Symposium Allelopathy in Agroecosystems (Agriculture and Forestry) organised from February 12-14, 1992 at Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, India. This was the first Conference on allelopathy in Asia. The eminent speakers delivered sixteen invited lectures in four technical sessions: (I) Crop Production, (II) Forestry and Grassland, (III) Aquatic-ecosystems and (IV) Allelochemicals. The chapters provide updated information on basic and applied aspects of allelopathy in the fields of agriculture and forestry and outlines future goals of research. Questions and answers asked during the lectures have been added chapter-wise. Besides, proceedings of the Conference and list of participants has also been included.

S. S. Narwal, Department of Agronomy, Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar-125 004, India

The term allelopathy was coined by Molisch in 1937 and includes both inhibitory and stimulatory effects of plants on each other including microorganisms. Most of the research in this field has been conducted in developed countries during the last 30-40 years. The first Book on Allelopathy written by Dr. E.L. Rice was published in 1974 and thereafter, many Books have appeared on its various aspects but none deal with the crop production aspects. Besides, during this period, thousands of research papers on various aspects of allelopathy have been published. This indicates the great interest World over in this new discipline because of its importance in modern sustainable agriculture. However, till now no book addresses the allelopathic interactions involved and role of allelopathy in field Crops Production. Allelopathy scientists interested in knowing these aspects, have to consult several Books etc. Although such information may be available to the Western World through electronic media, but this facility will not be available to thousands of allelopathy scientists in the under developed countries, where the importance of allelopathy is greater. In view of this, the present book has been published. This book is based on the research findings and addresses to various complex problems of crop production, to which there was no definite answer in the past but now these have been attributed to allelopathy.

It has been established that allelopathy offers great potential (a) to increase agricultural production (food grains, vegetables, fruits, forestry), (b) to decrease harmful affects of modern agricultural practices [multiple cropping, leaching losses from N fertilizers, indiscriminate use of pesticides (weedicides, fungicides, insecticides, nematicides), tolerant/resistant biotypes in pest] on soil health/productivity and on environment and (c) to maintain soil productivity and a pollution free environment for our future generations. It is likely that in the near future allelopathy will be used in crop production, crop protection, agroforestry and agrohorticiltural practices in developed and developing countries. Allelopathy may become one of the strategic sciences to reduce the environmental pollution and to increase agricultural production in Sustainable Agriculture of the 21st Century. Thus, it is now receiving more attention from Agricultural and Bioscientists.

The International Allelopathy Foundation organised the IV. International Allelopathy Congress, Allelopathy in sustainable Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems from August 23-25, 2004 at Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana, India. The Conference aimed to bring together active allelopathy scientists from worldwide to review progress, identify constraints, project future goals for basic and applied allelopathy research in Terrestrial and Aquatic Ecosystems. The outstanding International Allelopathy Scientists from Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Japan, China, Pakistan and Iran participated in this conference. The nine Technical Symposia comprised of (i). Soil Sickness, (ii). Weed Management, (iii). Cropping System, (iv). General, (v). Forestry/Agroforestry/Horticulture, (vi). Allelopathic Plants, (vii). Insect Management, (viii).

The rapidly growing human population has increased the dependence on fossil fuel based agrochemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides to produce the required agricultural and forestry products. This has exerted a great pressure on the non-renewable fossil fuel resources, which cannot last indefinitely. Besides, agrochemicals pollute the environment, the pest develop tolerance to pesticides and their new resistant strains are emerging. Hence, such practices cannot remain in use for ever. One safe alternative to overcome these problems is, the use of allelopathy to sustain development in agriculture and forestry and maintenance of clean environment for our future generations. The Indian Society of Allelopathy held the Third International Congress Allelopathy in Ecological Agriculture and Forestry from August 18-21, 1998, at the University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka, India. The Congress was aimed at bringing together active allelopathy scientists all over the world, to review the progress, identify constraints and plan for the next millennium, so as to provide a momentum to the applied aspects of allelopathy research in agriculture and forestry to maintain clean environment. The six technical symposia comprised of (I) Crop Allelopathy, (II) Cropping Systems, (III) Agroforestry, (IV) Allelochemicals as Herbicides, (V) Plant Protection and (VI) Ecological Agriculture. A total of 128 presentations (Key note, Plenary, Invited lectures, Contributory papers and Posters) were made by 106 delegates from 18 countries. Prof. R.H. Dilday, USA, the Father of Rice Allelopathy, was the Chief Guest at the Congress. This publication contains all the abstracts presented at this conference and highlights the various aspects of current allelopathic research in different parts of the World.
