Often no nodules formed at all, and those that did appeared to be ineffective as suppliers of nitrogen. Treatment o f test plots with formalin, the turf killer sodium dichloropropionate, or trichloroacetate, resulted in excellent nodulation and establishment o f the white clover.

After germination was completed, the plants were thinned to the 5 largest plants per pot, grown for an additional 2 weeks, and then compared on an oven-dried weight basis. Decaying sunflower leaves had an inhibitory effect on the germination o f Helianthus annuus, Erigeron canadensis, Amaranthus retroflexus, and Haplopappus ciliatus (Table 7). There was no effect on percentage germination o f Rudbeckia hirta and the three grasses tested: Bromus japonicus, Digitaria sanguinalis, and Aristida oligantha.

Field measurements indicated that thick stands o f crabgrass in the field average over 1 gm o f air-dried weight o f tops and roots per 454 gm o f soil to the depth of plowing. Seeds of crabgrass and of four other species usually associated with it in old fields were planted in soil containing 1 gm of air-dried whole plant material per 454 gm of soil or 1 gm of washed air-dried peat moss per 454 gm of soil for controls. Unlike the results with decaying Johnson grass or sunflower, decaying crabgrass did not inhibit seed germination or seedling growth of any species in any experiment.
