White clover (TRIFOLIUM ARVENSE)

A perennial plant seen most commonly in pastures and meadows. The white clover is a weed often seen in root vegetables as well as on garden lawns. The leaves are dark-green, divided in three. The blossoms are white, in the shape of a head – they grow on a long stalk. It is among the weed most difficult to control, with a high level of expansion. The stem of the white clover has a very well developed ability to root, and individual plants grow quickly. As the plant develops, its resistance to herbicides improves, hence one spray treatment may prove insufficient. In such a situation, one should repeat it when the manufacturer of the treatment product would recommend it. The seeds reach the crop field most commonly with manure, because they are not digested by farm animals.

The white clover grows best on soils with a high nitrogen content. In Poland it is not known just as a weed – it is sometimes grown purposefully.
