Green foxtail (SETARIA VIRIDIS)

An example of an annual plant. The green foxtail is a summer weed that does not exhibit any tendency to winter. It lights high temperatures and emerges quite late. The highest scale of presence is recorded among root vegetables an maize. It is seen fairly rarely in cereals. Most commonly a secondary weed. Distinctive is the image of the plant – it has flowers in an elongated ear form, hence, at first glance it might be mistaken for a self-seeder of a cereal. Development is facilitated by highly humid and rich soils – both clay and sandy ones.

The green foxtail is an invasive weed that expands a lot. A single plant can produce up to seven thousand seeds. This means that under favourable conditions, the infestation may be heavy and constitute a grave threat to the crop. In such a case, spray treatment with a suitably chosen herbicide will be necessary.
