    Abstract: Sorghum species are well known for allelopathic potential toward weeds and other crops. Sorghum above-ground residues mediate allelopathic activity through production and release of many allelochemicals including phenolic acids. Information is limited on selection of grain sorghum hybrids with high allelopathic potential and assessment of sorghum r... Show More
