An experiment is described in which the competition between perennial ryegrass, cocksfoot and timothy was examined under field conditions. Plant growth in environments of each of the three species was measured in terms of tiller number, herbage weight, shoot weight and root weight. The effect of the environments of the different species on the growth of plants in association is discussed, as also is the reaction shown by each species to different plants in the environment.
