ABSTRACT
The study was carried out to evaluate the allelopathic effect of the fresh shoot aqueous extract (FSE) and water soluble root exudate (WRE) of Tithonia diversifolia (Hemsl) A. Gray on the germination, growth and chlorophyll content of pepper (Capsicum annum L. ) and tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.). The aqueous extract of the fresh shoot (FSE) of T. diversifolia did not affect the germination of L. esculentum seeds but significantly retarded germination of C. annum seeds at p
