Abstract: The study was designed to explore the allelopathic effect of Populus deltoides leaf extract on Triticum aestivum under labourtary condition during 2015-2016 in the department of Silviculture and Agroforestry, Dr Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan 173230. The allelopathic influence of aqueous extracts of Populus deltoides leaves have determined on the germination, radical and plumule length of cereal crops. The experiment was laid out at completely randomized design with four replicates. In laboratory studies, wheat grown in the field was screened for allelopathic effect of poplar leaf extracts by using four extract concentrations of 5 (T1), 20 (T2), 40 per cent (T3) and control (T4). Inhibition effect of leaf extract on germination and growth parameters (radicle and plumule length) increased with increase in concentration of leaf extract. The maximum inhibition in germination percent (75.85%), radicle length (2.75 cm) and plumule length (1.48 cm) was reported in treatment T3, where 40 % concentration of poplar leaf extract was given
