Cleavers (GALIUM APARINE)

Typically found in cereals, rape and among root vegetables. Cleavers are an annual, summer or winter plant with a tendency to winter effectively. It is a weed that is quite typical in Poland. If appropriate steps are not taken to eliminate it, or if one chooses the wrong route, it could lead to grave consequences. The most important of these is excessive densification of the field, causing crop lodging, in the end hindering the harvest. The weed prefers heavy and humid soils with a high nitrogen content.

According to conducted observations, cleavers can reach up to two metres in height. Another name of the plant – sticky willy – is not accidental, as the plant may adhere to adjoining plants. The standard threshold of harm assumed for this species is 2-5 plants per square metre. The most effective is control in initial stages of development of the weed so that the crop is least harmed. Spray treatments using chemicals are usually effective.
