The effect of aqueous extracts of various parts viz. leaves, stem and roots of Ageratum conyzoides L. was studied on the protein content of mungbean (Vigna radiata L.) plants at different stages of its growth. Healthy and treated plants were analyzed after every 15 days for protein estimation using Lowry’s method. A decrease in the protein content was observed in all the treated plants as compared to control during all the stages of the growth. Maximum reduction in protein content was observed in the plants treated with leaf extract while the plants treated with root extract did not show much change in these contents.

Key words : Allelopathy, Ageratum conyzoides, mungbean (Vigna radiata), aqueous extracts, protein content.
