Topic : Allelopathic Potential of the Purified Fraction MNF10 from Nyctanthes arbor-tristis L. on Early Seed Growth and Seedling Characteristics of Vigna radiata (L) Wilczek

Authors:Shelmi Antony || Dr. Benny P J, Dr. Sunny Kuriakose

Abstract:The plants are the reservoirs of structurally different bioactive molecules. The isolation and identification of phytochemicals from plants are crucial for the discovery of new bioactive compounds to be used by various industries. Our previous study has reported the strong allelopathic potential of methanolic leaf extract of Nyctanthes arbor-tristis L. for the first time (Antony S and P.J. Benny, 2017). This study highlighted the characterization of an allelochemical present in the purified fraction, MN – F10 from Nyctanthes arbor-tristis L. through various spectroscopic assays. The potential allelopathic effect of MN - F10 was identified by assessing a dose-dependent reduction in the various growth characteristics of Vigna radiata (green gram) seedlings including early seedling growth, length of root and shoot, seedling vigor index and fresh & dry weight. All these growth parameters reduced at the same rate. This study warrants further investigation of the allelopathic potential of MN-F10 in field condition, which will finally lead to the development of a potential bioherbicide. .
