Asarum europaeum L. contains water-soluble substances which manifest allelopathic potential. Aqueous extracts from leaves and stems of Asarum europaeum were assayed to determine their allelopathic effects on Lycopersicon esculentum and Zea mays seeds germination and early seedling growth. The germination of the investigated seeds was found to be inhibited with increasing of the Asarum europaeum L. extract concentration. Moreover, the active substances extracted from leaves were found to be more inhibitory on the seeds germination in comparison with those extracted from stems.
