The reason behind such a result is that root is evidently the first to absorb the allelochemicals or autotoxic compounds from the environment [32].
West and Chilcote (1968) originally hypothesized that decline of Senecio could be attributed to an autotoxic leachate, but their data were inconclusive.
The products of enzymes, particularly toxic and autotoxic compounds such as these, can have several simultaneous effects.
Because many of the endogenously produced compounds probably have autotoxic properties, one would expect them to be synthesized at the site of sequestration and localized in a manner appropriate for their functional role (Hay and Fenical, 1988).

Leaf extracts of the invasive shrub, Lonicera maackii inhibit seed germination of three herbs with no autotoxic effects.
The autotoxic compounds were often isolated from consecutive monoculture soil, such as phenolic acid and aliphatic acid compounds, which could selectively enhance specific microbial populations in the soil which then leads to a shift in microbial communities (Qu and Wang, 2008; Li et al.
More research through the coordination of different crops rotation are needed which can reduce the accumulation of autotoxic substances and improve the structure and functional diversity of microbial community to restore ecosystem function of rhizosphere soil and overcome the obstacles of continuous cropping.
