About this book

The principal goal of allelopathy is to foster sustainable agriculture, forestry, and environment. The objective is to minimize the industrial chemicals and to maximize the use of natural resources locally available while improving crop productivity, forestry and the environment.

The technological advances made in allelopathy research in recent years have been created, analyzed, and developed by scientific establishments throughout the world. They present exciting and intellectually challenging problems which are solvable using modern techniques. These modern and advanced techniques as described in the chapters presented in this volume are representative of the exciting research and development approaches today.
