Field bindweed (CONVOLVULUS ARVENSIS)

The plant has numerous common names. The field bindweed can be called the lesser bindweed, European bindweed, withy wind or the morning glory. It is a durable, perennial species. It has an extensive root system, and this, among others, is the decisive factor indicating that it is a weed that is difficult to eliminate. In the fields it emerges most commonly among plants that are sown or planted in broad rows. It is less common among cereals or flax. A condition favouring the development of the field bindweed is the simplification of farming. It is also seen by roads, in pastures and in fallow areas.

This plant trails along the ground. This makes the field bindweed an enemy for crop, hindering its correct development. It has a tendency to bind other plants, forcing them to lean to the ground. It is a very competitive weed, posing a lot of threat to crop. Spraying by herbicides permits effective elimination of the infestation, however, the use of strong products is necessary, as they need to penetrate deep into the rizomes of the plant.
