Black nightshade (SOLANUM NIGRUM)

Among the weeds found in Poland, the black nightshade is among those particularly preferring high temperatures. It is an annual, summer plant. It emerges in autumn, however, it freezes during this time. Effective and mass emergence occurs in the warmer periods of the year, mainly towards the end of May/ beginning of June, hence the opinion about the thermal preferences of the weed. It is most commonly met among root vegetables, however, it is quite common also alongside maize and in vegetable plantations.

The black nightshade is a serious threat especially to the potato, as it is a disease vector for the edible bulbs. It grows best in nutrient-rich soils, particularly valuing nitrogen. It prefers light soils with a tendency to quickly warm up, and of low humidity. An effective method of removal of the black nightshade is spraying with a herbicide appropriate for the relevant crop.
