Cheat is a troublesome weed in many fields of winter cereals in south central United States. Cheat plants, especially their roots, were found to grow slowly at first.

Even though a weak competitor, cheat was never killed outright by a thick stand of wheat, nor was it ever prevented by crop competition from developing some seed.
