Annual Broad-leaved Weeds
A wide range of annual broad-leaved weeds can emerge from the soil seedbank and compete with crops. These plants normally reproduce by means of seeds, and in some respects they are therefore the easiest weeds to deal with as their life cycle is complete in one year. The main objective should be to remove plants before they compete with the crop early in the season and later in the year before they set seed, or impair the harvesting process. The cultural and mechanical weed management methods described under the weed management section can be used to control annual broad leaved weeds.
