Abstract


Large crabgrass is not registered in the Ellenberg’s list of halophyte species, but it growths in salt contaminated soil along roads. Our manipulative experiment in greenhouse was focused on growth activities of Large crabgrass in salt soil condition. Saline solutions of sodium chloride were 0, 0.12, 0.25, 0.50, 0.99, and 1.96%. The experiment confirmed the successful growth and development of Large crabgrass in soil contaminated with salt (0.12% of NaCl). The inhibitive effect was found in soil with NaCl concentration more than 0.12%.
