Goosefoot (CHENOPODIUM ALBUM)

Also known as the pigweed, the goosefoot is an annual, summer plant. It exhibits no tendency to winter. It sprouts throughout the entire growing season. It is most competitive against plants grown in broad rows. It poses most trouble to farmers of root vegetables, maize and other vegetables. If one would not undertake proper steps to control it, it can reduce the crop entirely and technically hinder the harvest. Should it reach an advanced development stage, it becomes very difficult to control. Prefers nitrogen-rich soils.

The goosefoot's proudest plants can reach up to a metre in height. The raw form exhibits high toxic activity both against farm animals as well as people. A single plant can produce up to three thousand seeds that are able to survive in the ground even up to ten years. In terms of control, a spray treatment with a well-chosen herbicide proves to be effective.
