Enriching Plants, a term employed by gardeners to denote such plants as ameliorate land, in consequence of which the same soil will produce a good crop of corn; as, without attending to the culture of such plants, a very indifferent one would have followed. —See Chops.

The necessity of sowing such vegetables has, however, been in a great measure superseded by the general adoption of the drill, and horse-hoeing husbandry, by which all weeds arc; totally eradicated, and consequently they will not obstruct the growth of the corn or other grain that may be sown. - See Drillixg.
