Common yellow woodsorrel (OXALIS STRICTA)

The common yellow woodsorrel is a perennial weed. It is found comparably seldom in field, but it is a frequent plant in gardens and on plantations of root vegetables. The possible appearance of the common yellow woodsorrel in the field is related to the simplification of management. It develops vegetatively, and all measures at simplification facilitate this process. It develops best on soils with a high humus content, with a slightly basal or neutral pH value. The presence of the common yellow woodsorrel may facilitate the development of the common rust of maize, being a problematic disease of this plant.

The common yellow woodsorrel can emerge in the crops around May and grow gradually. It flowers between June and September, yielding nice-looking yellow flowers. Spraying using napropamide yields high control effectiveness. It needs to be done particularly for maize fields, if the weed level is significant or if common rust of maize is seen.
