SUPERPOWER

A real hitch hiker! This weed spreads from field to field when its seeds hitch a ride on equipment travelling between fields or farms, as well as by water, wind and animals.

DESCRIPTION

Classified as a noxious weed in many provinces, scentless chamomile easily spreads from field to field on equipment. It can reduce yields in spring wheat crops anywhere from 30% to 80%. It is classified as a winter annual, but it can also become a simple perennial. It has fine leaves that can be distinguished from similar-looking species because it is odourless, unlike pineapple weed and stinkweed. This weed can rapidly reproduce from its white flowers and can have mature seeds in the seed head even though the head is still in flower.
