Hedge mustard (SISYMBRIUM OFFICINALE)

Among all kinds of weeds, the hedge mustard is among those most dangerous, however, not necessarily in terms of expansion. It is not a weed that develops very strongly. The threats associated with it stem from the content of very poisonous, toxic substances that, if they would make their way into flour, can cause significant poisoning both of animals as well as humans. Eating baked goods made of flour contaminated with hedge mustard is a typical case, hence, cereal farmers must be vigilant. Regular inspections of the crop in terms of presence of hedge mustard should become a common habit.

Due to the rarity of the weed, hedge mustard can mostly be dealt with without the use of herbicides. If it would become necessary, however, one should do it on a dry day, best with a product containing glyphosate.
