Examines growth and seed yield of three grain species including Tripsacum dactyloides. Species were grown alone and in combination with other species, and on soils with differing fertility. Tripsacum dactyloides persisted under both soil conditions although it grew better in the more fertile site. In most cases, the yield of each species grown in combination was similar to when grown in monocultures.
