Weeds don't play fair
A study of Digitaria sanguinalis, the common weed of lawns and field commonly called "crabgrass", has shown that there's more to its success than simple competition. Chemicals from Digitaria caused changes in nearby soil microbes which reduced growth of test crops. The allelopathic chemicals could also directly affect other plants.

Fungicide could cut down lawnmowing
A fungicide used, among other things, to treat dollar spot of turf could be used to increase efficiency of crops like corn. It was previously known that interfering with steroid biosynthesis could produce dwarf, female-flowering com plants, but the chemical required was far too expensive for practical use. American researchers, however, have found that the fungicide propiconazole is far cheaper. Testing on other grains is planned. It's also possible that greater use on golf courses could slow grass growth and save cutting costs. Source: Tiny plants could cut costs, shrink environmental footprint (May 2012)
