Abstract: Agroforestry system has potential to increase the overall yield, it essentially create competition among the components for resources in addition to presence of allelochemicals in either of the component which has impact on productivity. The present study entitled “Allelopathic Effect of Three Tree Species of Bauhinia on Some Traditional Crops of Garhwal Himalaya” was conducted in Ranichauri, Uttarakhand, India, during 2016 to 2017 to see the allelopathic effect of three tree species of B. purpurea (Khairwal), B. semla (Semla), and B. variegata (Kachnar) on five agriculture crops- (i) L. culinaris (Lentil), (ii) E. coracana (Finger millet), (iii) T. aestivum (Wheat), (iv) V. umbellata (Rice bean) and (v) E. frumentacea (Barnyard millet). The germination responses in terms of different extracts of leaf and bark of tree species showed that the maximum average seed germination percent varied to great extent irrespective of different leaf and bark extracts. In all the leaf extract concentrations, maximum of 100% germination in L. culinaris, V. umbellata, and MGT of 3.86 days in T. aestivum recoded on B. purpurea. In bark extracts of tree species, the maximum MGT of 7.45 days in T. aestivum and minimum of 1.28 days in L. culinaris under 5 % concentrations of B. variegata. Maximum GI of 4.16 in L. culinaris at 5% concentration of leaf and bark extract of B. variegata. The extracts had different influences on seed germination, root and shoot growth, MGT and GI of test crops. Overall, allelopathic effects are species specific; L. culinaris and T. aestivum were most resistant to leaf and bark extract than, V. umbellata, and E. frumentacea, E. coracana was most sensitive. The current study providing some relevant information’s of allelopathic effect of three tree species of Bauhinia on five test crops will assist identify local tree crops with less toxic effects in the soil and recommending suitable species for agroforestry planting programme for better farm management.
