Nodulation of Burpees Stringless bean was reduced also, with the inhibition decreasing with increasing distance from the weed. Watering Burpees Stringless bean in soil with leachates from pots containing P. hysterophorus markedly inhibited nodulation and root and shoot growth of bean plants. Similar leachates markedly inhibited growth of UP301 wheat plants also. Maximum exudation of inhibitors from the roots of P. hysterophorus occurred at the rosette and flowering stages, and the inhibitors remained active for about 30 days.

Datta and Chatterjee (1978, 1980a) tested extracts of various organs of this weed against mustard (Brassica juncea), lettuce (Lactuca sativa), rice, and pea (Pisum sativum). Leaf and stem extracts reduced seed germination in all test species, and flower and root extracts reduced germination in all except pea. Lettuce was not used in growth tests, but growth of all other species was inhibited by certain concentrations of some extracts. Growth was decreased most by leaf extracts, and mature leaves produced more inhibitory material than young leaves or leaves of an intermediate age.
