Field chamomile (ANTHEMIS ARVENSIS)

An annual, summer plant that winters well. The field chamomile is a weed preferring light soils, and is found rarely on medium and heavier soils. Due to its visual similarity it is often mistaken with a different plant – the false mayweed. It feels best among maize, in rye, triticale and among legumes. It develops well on highly acidic soils with a low nutrient content. As a necessity, it is most harmful to those species that are planted or sown on soils that have few nutrients.

The field chamomile may be effectively controlled by mechanical methods, hence, in advantageous conditions, using a herbicide is not necessary. In such a case, it is recommended to remove early seedlings as well as mature plants before they yield seeds. In situations of high pressure, spraying with a suitably chosen mix of active agents is necessary.
