It should be noted that corncockle (Agrostemma githago), cornflower (Centaurea cyanus), brome (Bromus secalinus/hordeaceus), corn gromwell (Lithospermum arvense) and ball-mustard (Neslia paniculata) are all considered winter-crop weeds (cf.

The statistical power in the experiment with Triticum aestivum and Agrostemma githago
was apparently low and only the hypothesis that Agrostemma githago
had no effect on the growth of Triticum aestivum could be rejected (H10, Table 2).

Among the weeds and ruderal plants several field weeds were observed: corn cockle (Agrostemma githago
), Centaurea cyanus, wild turnip (Brassica campestris), foxtail (Setaria sp.), black bindweed (Fallopia convolvulus), pale persicaria (Polygonum lapathifolium), cleavers (Galium aparine).
