Stinging nettle (URTICA DIOSCA)

Considering the weed types common in Poland, the stinging nettle is a plant that is seldom seen in fields. It is a broadly growing perennial plant. It has a stinging stem and leaves, blossoming between June and October. The flowers can be green or light yellow. They are embedded around corners of leaves. It grows commonly in ruderal areas and by roads. It prefers places of intense humidity and nitrogen-rich soils. This causes that it is used as an indicator plant for qualifying soils as rich in nitrogen. It can show up often after fertilisation. As for the harm level, it is most detrimental to summer rape.

The stinging nettle is also found in plantations of legumes, root vegetables and in vegetable gardens. Control in fields is possible if a weed removal product of an appropriate composition is used.
