The possible reason for this effect of tillage systems on seed bank may be attributed to the reduction of seed bank density of field bindweed in conventional tillage due to frequent plowings and resultantly maximum seed germinations in rainy seasons because the repeated tillage operations might have brought the seeds of field bind weed near the soil surface which emerged rapidly due to more soil aeration and availability of sunlight (Cardina et al., 2002).

Most of reduction effects were obtained by adding leaf residues from field bindweed leaf and the least by adding the residues of whole plant.
Rate of leaf area per plant of wheat equivalent to 21.45 [cm.sup.2] in control conditions in which decreased significantly with different amounts of residues from field bindweed. This reduction increased by adding the amount of residues to soil so that adding 40g.
and leaf residues treatment yield the maximum grain as 3.31 g, thus adding 40 g residues root, stem, leaf and whole plant of field bindweed to soil decreased 38.79, 35.05, 14.58 and 22.25 % grain yield, respectively.
