Common henbit (LAMIUM AMPLEXICAULE)

Among the weed encountered in Poland, the common henbit is included among the most competitive plants. It competes with the crop to get nutrients from the soil and the water it needs – throughout the entire growing season. It is an annual, summer plant that can cope with winter well. It can be seen in fields where cereals, maize and where animal feed is grown. Apart from that, it is quite common in fallow areas and ruderal settings. It feels great on sandy and sand-clay soils that are well aerated and quick to heat up.

The common henbit is a weed that is not easy to control, it is additionally quite dangerous in itself. It is quite toxic, and the animals most susceptible to poisoning are horses. It flowers between May and September. Other than the purple dead-nettle, it has no strong smell. It is best to attempt to control it in autumn, but one needs to prepare for it well. The weed is resistant to most herbicides offered on the market.
