Lateral roots of a clone of field bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis L.) were dug each month for 12 months, cut into 6-cm long sections and grown in the dark on moist paper at 23 C to determine if regeneration varies seasonally. New shoots and roots were measured after 8, 11, and 14 days. After 14 days, 69% to 98% of the sections had produced shoots. The mean number of shoots per section was greatest in April (6.4) and least in November (2.0). The monthly mean shoot length ranged from 24 to 43 mm. Although most sections produced shoots, very few produced roots. In May, 31% of the sections grew roots, but only 2% to 16% had new root growth in the other months. For the test period, 83% of the sections produced shoots and only 10% produced roots.
