Abstract
In order to determine if a symbiotic relationship or allelopathy exists among summer squash and mung bean, summer squash and pinto bean, and mung bean and pinto bean, investigations were conducted using the method described by Newman and Miller (1975), with some modifications. Two groups of plant grown in containers were designated as "donors", referring to the leachate donors and "receivers", referring to the receivers of the leachates. While summer squash exhibited autotoxicity, mung bean root leachates tended to promote growth of pinto beans and summer squash.
