Rape self-seeders (BRASSICA NAPUS VAR. OLEIFERA)

As a difficult weed, rape self-seeders are a big problem for many types of plantations. They are considered annual summer or winter plants (with the winter form dealing very well during periods of low temperature). Its threat is biggest for winter cereals, if the crop rotation would commonly include winter rape. The seeds stem from the shattering pods. In the initial phase of development, it intensely competes with the crop to get its sunlight and nutrients from the soil. It is a disease and vermin vector for other plants from the brassicaceae family, including winter rape.

Rape self-seeders are really dangerous for maize, cereals as well as for rape itself. The seeds can remain in the soil even for up to several years, hindering effective control of the weed. The effectiveness of elimination depends on the introduction of appropriately quick activities. A key role is played in this context by e. g. spraying with herbicides. They have to be suitable for the crop so as not to hinder its development.
