Abstract
Polygonum pensylvanicum L., Abutilon theopbrasti Medic., Setaria viridis (L.) Beauv. and S. lutescens (Weigel) Hubb. were grown with and without competition from maize plants. P. pensylvanicum and A. theophrasti heights increased 147% and 14%, respectively, in competition with maize plants. With maize competition, plant weight, stem diameter, inflorescence length and number of inflorescences, fruit or seeds of P. pensylvanicum and A. theophrasti plants decreased up to 99% whereas growth and seed production of the 2 Setaria spp. decreased by 49-97%.
