Couch grass (ELYMUS REPENS)

The couch grass is high up on the list of weed types that are difficult to control. It is a perennial plant that is highly expansive, primarily due to its methods of reproduction. It primarily uses long and numerous underground shoots, and they are the source of new plants. The farming methods used by farmers facilitate vegetative reproduction, serving the couch grass on the side. It is a dangerous weed in cultivated green areas, also present in fields.

The couch grass can be seen basically in any kind of crop in agriculture. It feels best on any soil, but is particularly favours sandy variants with a low pH level. It deprives the crop of water and light. It can be controlled in multiple ways. Spray treatments using herbicides are, however, necessary in most cases, as an amendment to mechanical methods.
