Earth smoke (FUMARIA OFFICINALIS)

The earth smoke is an annual, summer weed. It first emerges in the autumn, but the plant does not exhibit a tendency to winter. It is not considered a burdensome weed, however, in favourable conditions it can exhibit high pressure, and, accordingly, noticeably reduce the crop. Spring emergence of the earth smoke contributes heavily to the plant mass until harvest. It grows best in very humid areas in nutrient-rich soils. It is frequently seen among root vegetables, but not only them.

The earth smoke can also be seen among legumes, in maize plantations and in cereals. If allowed to grow extensively in animal feed, it is able to reduce its quality, hence animal farmers should take note of its activity. It is controlled by spraying with an appropriately chosen herbicide adapted as well to the crop type.
