Birdweed (POLYGONUM ARVICULARE)

The birdweed is a member of annual or biennial summer plants. The birdweed is known primarily as weed in broad-row fields. Typically it is thus noted among root vegetables and in maize fields. In addition, it can be seen in ruderal areas and by roads. It can emerge seldom also in rape fields and cereal fields. It is at home practically on all kinds of soil, however, it feels best in humid areas that are very well lit by sunlight.

The maximum height is approx. 15 cm, however, birdweed also has stems that trail along the ground. They can grow to be 50-70 cm long. The plant produces quite an extensive root system and can be deeply rooted. Blossoms between June and October. If the weed pressure is high, spray treatments using appropriate herbicides, chosen to attack the weed in its specific stage of development and to suit the crop, are recommended.
