Abstract

Weed invasion is a serious biotic stress on fallow lands. To suppress weeds, it is suggested to sow high diversity seed mixtures composed by non-weedy disturbance tolerant and generalist members of the biological flora. Available seed ecological knowledge on these species is more or less satisfactory regarding seed weight, seed shape and dispersal type, however, more research needed to learn their soil seed bank types, germination and seed storage requirements. To determine exact composition of multi-species seed mixtures applicable in practice, case studies should be conducted under major climatic and soil conditions.
