The inappropriate use of herbicides has increased the resistance of weeds; thus, the study of allelopathy becomes of paramount importance. The ability of certain plants to interfere with the metabolism of others by means of substances released into the environment, either by their aerial or roots system, becomes an alternative to combat invasive plants, dispensing with or reducing the use of herbicides. The objective of this work was to evaluate the plant species most sensitive to the allelopathic potential of aqueous extracts. One of the plant species studied was lettuce because it had a rapid response potential, thus showing the benefits obtained through allelopathy.
