Wild buckwheat/ black-bindweed (POLYGONUM CONVOLVULUS/FALLOPIA CONVOLVULUS)

It is included among annual, summer weed types. The wild buckwheat emerges primarily in May and June, as well as in the beginning of autumn. It is most common in plantations of root vegetables, among cereals and maize. If allowed to exert high pressure, it densifies the field intensely, and causes a lot of shade. If it grows in cereals, it causes crop lodging, hindering the harvest greatly. It feels best in medium and light soils, with low nutrient content. The stem can grow to a metre in height, and the leaves are heart-shaped.

The wild buckwheat has stems that trail along the ground and most often envelop the stems of the neighbouring plants. Its control can be effective, but must be started as soon as possible so that the weed is unable to expand, and to threaten the crop. Best results can be achieved by spray treating using appropriately selected herbicides.
