which damages corn. 1980.  Between 1% and 2% of glyphosate was extruded by roots (pumped out into the surrounding soil) after 10 days.. Kansas Academy of Science Transactions 54:356-369. In Russia, Mikhailova and Tarasov (1989) determined that the majority of shoots in a clone were both mature and vegetative; less than 10% were either young or sexually reproductive.  Cirsium arvense infestations here are particularly troublesome in the northwest and north central states, especially north of the 35th parallel , and in the southern part of Canada. Field trials of. Stems are 30â150 cm, slender green, and freely branched, smooth and glabrous (having no trichomes or glaucousness), mostly without spiny wings. Uses of plants by the Chippewa Indians. Rees, N.E. Manure must be spread 2 m thick and cover an area 5-6 m in diameter Cirsium arvense, and plants that emerge at the mulch perimeter must be removed. It occurs in nearly every upland herbaceous community within its range, and is a particular threat in grassland communities and riparian habitats. It is necessary to prevent shoot growth for at least two years to deplete roots and kill Canada thistle. Young seeds germinate well in high light-, and old seeds in low light-conditions (Kolk 1947 cited in Moore 1975). M.S. Two to three annual fall applications of picloram at 280 g/ha gradually reduced Cirsium arvense density, and both one and three consecutive annual fall applications at 560 g/ha essentially eliminated Cirsium arvense (Donald 1993). The plant's vigor decreases with drought conditions , especially in autumn  although in Sweden, Cirsium arvense's long root system allows it to tolerate dry summers better than annual crops. 1967. Kay, Q.O.N. 1386.  It is believed that general arousal can be stimulated through exposure of a single compound, whereas the accumulated exposure of all the compounds influence the foraging behaviour of the butterflies. The character of, Boerboom, C.M. Increasing the native component of the invaded community reduces the potential for Cirsium arvense re invasion by decreasing bare soil (and opportunity for seedling establishment) and increasing competition (thereby reducing rate of vegetative invasion). Walk through potential habitat; prairies, pastures, roadsides (any open herbaceous community). 14 p. Willard, C.J. 1985. vestitum (Wimm. Wyse.  Cirsium arvense roots are cold-sensitive, injured when directly exposed to cold temperatures for 8 hours at -2°C, and dying after 8 hrs at -6°C. Cirsium arvense Lífríki (Biota) Ríki (Kingdom) Plöntur (Plantae) Biologicia (Bratislava) 44:433-440. Most potential biocontrol organisms are not adequately synchronized with Cirsium arvense's life cycle in North America to induce high mortality. Use of Canada thistle rust as a biological control agent. Four varieties are recognized: var. For all herbicides except 2,4-D, two or more applications give better control than a single application, regardless of seasonal sequence (spring-fall treatment gave equal control to fall-spring treatment; Ang., B.N. In the upper Midwest (Wisconsin and Illinois) Cirsium arvense is found in degraded sedge meadows, growing on tussocks elevated above the normal high water line. Discing an all-male population may result in development of female plants. Excellent illustrations of Cirsium arvense may be found in Detmers (1927), Rogers (1928) and Haderlie et al. Hogenbirk, J.C. and R.W. Areas treated with repeated discing, repeated mowing, or broadcast herbicide application usually have little or no native vegetation remaining. Fort Collins. Cirsium arvense response to fire varies from positive to negative, depending on season of burn, soil moisture, and location. Studies of seed production is a small fly that deposits its eggs Cirsium.
