Spatial and temporal buildup of juglone Black walnut and other members of the family Juglandaceae have long been known to produce an Several factors influence the accumulation of juglone allelopathic compound known as ‘‘juglone'' which in a growing area, including rhizosphere interactions, inhibits the growth of several other species of plant uptake by soil organisms, adsorption of juglone to (Davis ; Willis ).
