Swallowwort (VIOLA ARVENSIS)

This weed is usually not seen in fields. The swallowwort is a perennial plant. It is most commonly seen in humid and shaded areas. The typical places are parks, ruderal areas, gardens as well as tree and fruit orchards. It is present in vegetable plantations. It is hard to mistake the swallowwort for other species, because its stalk, upon breaking, secretes a characteristic, light orange juice. Noticeable are also the intensely yellow flowers.

The swallowwort has a specific expansion profile. Its seeds are spread by ants and may sprout up to five years. The plant is common across all of Poland. It is included among weed resistant to mechanical control. This means that spray treatment with chemical products is the sole effective solution. Practice shows that these must be herbicides of a highly concentrated mode of action.
