The purpose of this research is to know whether the aqueous extract of mango leaves (Mangifera indica L.) have an effect on the growth of purple nutsedge (Cyperus rotundus L.). This research was conducted at Botanical Laboratory of Biology Department Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences University of Lampung from September to October 2017. This experiments were carried out in a complete randomized design with the main factors being aquaeous extractof mango leaveswith 5 level concentration : 0% w / v ( control), 5% w / v, 10% w / v, 15% w / v, and 20% w / v and consist of 5 replications. Parameters measured were shoot length, fresh weight, dry weight, and relative water content. Homogeneity of variance was determined by Levene test at 5% significant level. Analysis of variance and Tukey HSD testis done at 5% significant level. The results showed that the concentration of extract was negatively correlated with shoot length where theshoot length was decreased significantly at 20% extract concentration. Total fresh weight was descreased significantly at 20% andcorrelated linearly negative with extract concentration. Total dry weight wasdecreased significantly at 20% extract concentration. There was no significant effect on relative water content. From thisresearch it was concluded that aquaeous extract of mango leaves at 20% extract concentration was decrease shoot length, fresh weight and dry weight of purple nutsedge.
