STAFF REPORT HYD: Noted scientist and Head of Sciences Wildwood College St. Louis Missouri, USA, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Afzal Khan Lodhi, has emphasized the need for adopting the crop rotation plan as the current crop deposits in Pakistan have certain adverse effects on next crop.
He emphasized this while delivering a lecture on “Ecosystem Health Plant and Plant-Microbe Interaction ” at the Video Conference Hall of the Faculty of Natural Science, University of Sindh here last week.
He said that certain chemicals, called “Allelochemicals” can prevail in crop residue which ultimately inhibits the growth of coming crop planted at the same field. While presenting a clear picture of natural forest ecosystem, he explained about interaction of plants with other plants.
