Soil minus litter was collected under a P. aviculare stand and under a bermudagrass stand in March and in July, and these soil collections were used to grow five different test species: Gossypium barbadense (cotton), sorghum, Chenopodium album, Sporobolus pyramidatus, and bermudagrass. Soil collected under Polygonum in July did not affect seed ger­ mination and seedling growth of any of the test species when compared with germination and growth in soil collected under bermudagrass.
