Birdeye speedwell (VERONICA PERSICA)

An annual weed. The birdeye speedwell is registered as a winter and a summer plant, and copes well with low temperatures. It is a common weed in fields or in wide-row plantations. It is active practically throughout the entire growing season, and sprouts heavily together with the crop, as well as following the post-harvest crop. Typical locations are clay and sandy soils that are rich in nutrients. The stems of the plant can reach heights of 10-50 cm, can be erect or trail along the ground. It may develop roots.

The birdeye speedwell has blue flowers visible at leaf corners. The harm threshold is considered to be reached in case of 10-15 plants per square metre. It is most dangerous if emerging in parallel with the crop. It is very demanding of nutrients, water and sunlight. Spraying by selective herbicides is usually a good way to get rid of the infestation.
