Description of Allelopathy Chemistry and Mode of Action of Allelochemicals


The worldís need for research and development in allelopathy in agriculture, forestry, and ecology will be outlined. The worldís agricultural and forestry production, as well as the ecological dimensions in relation to population, calls for global changes to be brought about by allelopathy. It is important, I think, for us to emphasize the evolutionary nature of these changes in priorities. The judicial use of allelopathy reflects the new priorities and new values that are evolving within our society.

Allelopathy can be a challenge to all disciplines. A team approach to solving these complicated problems is both important and necessary since seldom can all of the research, development or production be accomplished by one group. We must work together to achieve our new goals in improving the quality of life through allelopathy.
