Common poppy (PAPAVER RHOEAS)

Able to winter well, it is a summer, annual plant. The common poppy grows mainly among root vegetables and cereals. It is seldom seen in rape and among legumes. Its negative influence on the quality of feed is recorded. Due to a certain level of toxic ingredients, if present in a sufficiently high volume, it can lead to symptoms of slight poisoning in animals. Develops best in humus and in heavy soils, with a high calcium and nitrogen content. A typical situation is its introduction to a field together with manure. It has several names – the corn poppy, the field rose or the red poppy. Blossoms in the spring or summer, and is able to sprout even at low temperatures, starting at +1 °C.

The corn poppy can grow to a metre in height. Has easily distinguishable red flowers with four petals. It is best eliminated at an early stage. If spraying is effected early on, its competition against the crop can be effectively controlled.
