  A laboratory experiment was conducted to observe the effect of Juglans regia L. leaf extracts on germination and subsequent seedling growth of wheat (cv. VL-907) and barley (cv. PRB-502) under West Himalayan agri-silvi system. Eleven treatments comprised of distilled water 0 (Control), 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100% concentration of leaf extracts were employed. The effect of aqueous extracts was found inhibitive indicating a direct proportional relationship with concentration dependent manner on seed germination and subsequent seedling growth of wheat. Invariably, there was a decrease in root, shoot as well as seedling length, fresh and dry weight of seedling and vigour index I and II with increasing walnut leaf extracts concentration on wheat. However, barley seed showed a considerable resistance against walnut leaf extract and no significant reduction and trend was observed for seed germination and subsequent seedling growth i.e., fresh and dry weight, vigour index I and II for different concentration of leaf extracts.

  Perilla is a mint plant (Laminaceae family),Perilla frutescens, growing in the hills and mountains of East Asia (mainly India, China, Japan and Korea).It has been spread around the globe during the previous century; initially it was desired as a decorative garden plant, but then it escaped cultivation; as an example, it now grows in spots throughout most of the Eastern and Midwestern United States, described as an invasive weed. Perilla is an important spice and oil crop of the mountain region. The trial was conducted under the field conditions at college of forestry and Hill Agriculture, Ranichauri Campus. Eighteen germplasm lines were evaluated in observation rows along with two check varieties (Shillog and Jaihtig), during kharif of 2011. The experimental result depicted that the dissimilar genotypes showed wide difference for 50% flowering, maturity duration (%), plant height, number of primary branches plant-1, thousand seed weight and seed yield plant-1. Substantial variation among the genotypes for different characters might be used for further breeding programs.
