Field pennycress (THLASPI ARVENSE)

The field pennycress is an annual, summer plant that winters successfully. It emerges quite slowly – the process begins early on in autumn and lasts until late spring. It is quite a common weed in rape and cereals, among legumes and root vegetables. It develops very well on rich soils, mainly heavy and moderate ones that have a high calcium content. This weed is considered a vector of disease and vermin of the brassiceaeae, including of winter rape. The stalks may reach heights of 15-50 cm, have rosette-like and toothed leaves.

The field pennycress blossoms between April and September. Noticeable are the small four-petalled flowers that, upon withering, change into green heart-shaped pods. This weed is effectively controlled by herbicides. Spraying is the ultimate method, apart from it, preventive treatment must be effected, be it in the form of suitable crop rotation schemes.
