Cock's-foot (TRIFOLIUM ARVENSE)

It is not only a dangerous type of weed, but also a valuable component of animal feed. The cock's-foot is a very durable plant, valued as feed for farm animals. It is very universal – it can develop perfectly in any type of soil. As a weed, it is most common in ruderal areas, in tree and fruit bush orchards. It can also grow along roads and in fallow areas. The stems of the cock's-foot in the vegetative state are usually up to 50 cm high, and in the generative state they can reach up to 150 cm. The pant has a thick and complex root system. It is characterised by a dynamic pace of growth, so if it slithers out of control it can hinder the development of other species.

When cut down, it grows back quickly, hence the cock's-foot is difficult to eliminate. If considered a pest, herbicidal spray treatment can limit its expansion. It is to be applied at the right moment of development.
