Plant allelochemicals might interfere with growth of conspecific individuals (known as autotoxicity) when high concentrations are accumulated in soil. Autotoxicity is ubiquitous in both natural and manipulated ecosystems and may have important ecological implications.This chapter reviewed the role and management of autotoxicity in agriculture and forestry. It also discussed the mode of action of autotoxicity and its controlling factors.
