This study was conducted in order to evaluate the allelopathic effects of medicinal and vegetable plants on the seed germination and seedling growth of common lambsquarters Chenopodium album. The experiment was done in complete randomized design (CRD) with 4 replications. Treatments included different plants including dill, garden cress, coriander, peppermint and rosemary and theirs different organs including (seed (except rosemary), seedling (exceptrosemary), root and shoot). Results showed that plant exudates were significantly effects (P<0.01) on germination percentage, germination rate, radicle length, plumule length and seedling length and seedling weight. The highest amount of all measured traits had in control conditions and shoot of dill and shoot of garden cress led to the highest inhibition effectson these traits.
