Pot culture and field experiment were conducted to evaluate the allelopathic effect of different concentrations of various types of dust of Xanthium indicum L. on the vegetative growth parameters such as - development of total number of leaves per plant, height of the plant, total leaf area and  leaf area index of green gram (Phaseolus radiatus). The results showed that different concentrations of various types of dust of test weed (5, 10, 15 and 20 %) in pot were influenced significant and caused inhibitory effect on vegetative growth parameters crop. In case of field experiment ratio of crop plant (C.P.) & Xanthium plant (X.P.) per plot (100:00, 75:25, 50:50 and 75:25) were exhibited negative correlation between increase of test weed population in experimental plot and vegetative growth parameters of the crop. The study indicates that the allelochemicals released from the various types of dust into the soil in pot culture experiment and   increased weed density of the field were suppressed the above parameters of the of the green gram plant.

Keywords: Allelopathy, Agricultural crop, Phaseolus radiatus, Vegetative   growth, Dust.
