Bird vetch (VICIA CRACCA)

A member of durable, perennial weeds. The bird vetch emerges in the spring. It occurs primarily in plantations of cereals and legumes. The highest level of danger stems from point pressure. It can significantly hinder the maturation of plants and their effective harvest. In case of farm plants, the level of pressure is insignificant. The plant has an extensive root structure, and the stalks trail along the ground and may envelop other species. It develops well in clay soils and in humus of high permeability.

The bird vetch blossoms between June and September. It is most common among root vegetables as well as winter cereals. Control by mechanical methods is quite effective, hence the use of chemicals is permitted only as a last resort. Any sort of spray treatments must be suitable for the crop type and must contain specific herbicides that are rather milder in action.
