      "Noxious" weeds are so called because they are harmful (from the Latin, nocere, to harm).But the term is an inexact one since a so-called noxious weed may not be harmful to everyone; plus people will disagree on what criteria should be used to measure the broadest sense, quite a variety of unwanted plants can be classified as noxious weeds, so we must approach the subject from a number. Canada thistle stands erect to /3 feet (1 m) tall and grows in clumps or patches. Its stems are slender and hairless or nearly hairless. Leaves are oblong to lance shaped, mostly 2 to 8 inches long (5–20 cm), prickly, and are alternate to one another along the stem.

To date, none have been effective at reducing the weed on a large scale. The most widespread insect is Hadroplontus litura weevil, which first was released in North Dakota in the s.

Two years before confederation, legislation required farmers to cut the weed 1.

The seeds of this broadleaf perennial can go dormant for up to 20 years 2, but only about 10% of Canada thistle is spread through seed 1. Its deep roots are the real issue.

Chemical Canada Thistle Control Canada thistle can be killed with weed killers. The best time to apply these is on sunny days when the temperatures are between 65 and 85 degrees F. ( C.). Because many weed killers are non-selective, they will kill anything they touch, so it is best not to use these on windy days.

Canada thistle grows naturally throughout most of Canada and much of the northern and western United States. This perennial plant has a large root system that spreads out widely and digs down deep into the soil.

The extensive root system makes it a difficult weed to control. Easier to remove than Canada Thistle, Bull Thistle is by no means a weak weed. The best way to remove this type of thistle is while they’re still young flower heads and haven’t had enough time to lay down as many do this, use a small shovel, hand rake, or even a fork to dig out the weed.

Control of Canada Thistle in CRP and Other Noncrop Acreage • FNRW Herbicides that are efective on Canada thistle will injure or kill most broadleaf plants (including legumes) and glyphosate will injure or kill grasses. In many areas, spot treatment of Canada thistle provides suicient control of thistle.

Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense) is a root-creeping perennial. Thickets of thistle crowd out forage grasses in pastures and rangelands, reducing crop yields and productivity.

Considered noxious under the BC Weed Control Act, Canada thistle is commonly found on roadsides, cultivated fields, pastures, logged forests, riverbanks, and other. The leaf surfaces are smooth to slightly hairy.

Unlike other exotic thistles in North Dakota, Canada thistle does not have a highly spiny stem. Canada thistle leaf upper surface; note that is it smooth (P.

Glyphosate combined with other herbicides can provide good results 2. Express is the only sunflower labeled herbicide that has good to excellent activity on Canada thistle 3. To control Canada thistle, use Roundup® For Lawns 1 Ready-To-Use to spot treat plants as they appear.

To prevent future Canada thistle invasions, routinely fertilize your lawn (4 times per year) to keep it so thick and lush that there’s simply no room for weeds.

For example, if a canola field has an average of 15 Canada thistle shoots/m2, the estimated yield loss would be: Per cent yield loss = + x 15 = 17 Since no control measure provides % weed kill, and since weeds are not killed immediately on emergence, all of this loss can never be recovered.

Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense) is a perennial plant with extensive spreading roots that rapidly forms dense colonies. Vegetative shoots arise from adventitious buds located on Canada thistle roots.

Canada thistle also spreads by seed; each shoot can produce more than 1, seeds. Plants grow from 1 to 4 feet tall and have spiny, lance-shaped. If Canada thistle becomes rooted, the best control is to stress the plant and force it to use stored root nutrients.

It’s at its weakest during the flowering stage in summertime; this is a good time to begin cultivation and destroy the roots and rootstock.

Canada thistle [Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop.] is increasing in both frequency and density in Saskatchewan alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) seed ation of preharvest glyphosate is an effective means of controlling Canada thistle in annual crops. This study was conducted to determine the effects of preharvest glyphosate on Canada thistle control and crop tolerance in alfalfa seed fields.

Canada thistle is a non-native, deep-rooted perennial that spreads by seeds and aggressive creeping, horizontal roots called thistle can grow 2 to 4 feet in height. The leaves are oblong, spiny, bright green, and slightly hairy on the undersurface. penetrate up to 20 ft deep. Canada thistle plantscan grow 2 to 5 ft tall and branch only at the top.

Leaves are slender, smooth, and have crinkled edges with spiny margins. Canada thistle has male and female flowers on separate plants (dioecious)and seed production requires the.

Canada Thistle Control Measures To eliminate Canada thistle you must injure and exhaust its root system, and do it repeatedly. A successful control program requires multiple seasons, and multiple treatments within a season (Table 1).

Since the ’s, a Canada thistle gall-fly (Urophora cardui) and a stem-mining weevil (Hadroplontus litura) have been used to control Canada thistle in North America.

However, these two insects have been very limited in field settings and are ineffective overall. Recent research now allows us to utilize.
