, there is considerable pressure to avoid a complete ban of the species and allow the sale of “safe” genotypes that are less prolific seed producers ( Knight et al., 2011 ). Preliminary research suggests that substantial differences in seed production may

Cover crops improve soil health and can be beneficial for weed management by suppressing weeds at different stages. During the cover crop growth period, cover crops can reduce weed growth and seed production through direct competition or

. Additionally, evidence of parthenocarpy and cross-incompatibility was found in kousa dogwood. In all years, for self- and crosspollinations of kousa dogwood, there was fruit set without seed production and it was always higher in ‘Blue Shadow’ than Galilean

to establish a lawn because this grass germinates and establishes quickly ( Bush, 1997 ). To produce adequate and high-quality seed of common carpetgrass, it is desirable to understand the inheritance of traits related to seed production. Pollination

. The degree to which a plant is able to accomplish this goal is also one of the main factors determining the invasive potential of a species ( Dozier, 1999 ). Seed production and seed germination have been the primary criteria in evaluating exotic
