Field speedwell (VERONICA ARVENSIS)

The field speedwell is a unique member of annual summer plants, because it winters well. It is common across all of Poland as an archaeophyte, but it is also seen in Asia and north Africa. It is a weed of root vegetables and cereals. It is basically able to sprout throughout the entire growing season. The flowers are small, have four petals, and are blue. Considering its high expansive potential, it can cause significant harm to the crop, especially in their initial stage of development. It prefers light soils that are rich in nitrogen. It belongs to the plantain family, and can grow up to 25 cm in height.

One field speedwell plant is able to produce 50-100 seeds that are then carried with the wind. To achieve a better result, one should start control as soon as possible so that the weed does not hinder the seedlings. Spray treatment using properly chosen herbicides is highly effective in the removal of this pest.
