Effects of Atrazine and Phenolic Compounds on Germination and Seedling Growth of Some Crop Plants.

Nazia Burhan and S. Shahid Shaukat    

Abstract: The phytotoxicity of atrazine and three phenolic compounds (i.e., benzoic, p-coumaric and caffeic acids) was investigated. The germination of six test species was reduced by atrazine in the order: pearl-millet > wheat> turnip> carrot> corn> mustard. Whereas, the phenolic compounds affected the germination of pearl-millet in the order: caffeic acid> benzoic acid> p-coumaric acid. Atrazine in conjunction with the three phenolic compounds exhibited synergistic effect on the process of germination and seedling growth.
