Gout wort (AEGOPODIUM PADAGRARIA)

The gout wort blossoms between June and August. It has a unique blossom in the form of a canopy composed of small white flowers. It is included among vegetatively and generatively reproducing perennial plants. It can reach a height of up to 100 cm. Noteworthy is the fact that it is not found in fields, but is very active in fruit orchards – both among trees as well as bushes. It can harm particularly strongly strawberry plantations. It is also frequently present in meadows, fallow areas and forests.

The gout wort is a threat to crops, competing effectively to get its nutrients and water. It is most needful of potassium and nitrogen. As for control, chemical methods have proven effective. Spray treatment by herbicides is thus necessary – especially through the use of products containing glufosinate ammonium or glyphosate.
