Field bindweed is a creeping perennial from Europe. A member of the Morning glory family, it reproduces not only by seed but by its horizontal roots as well. The root system and
rhizomes are extensive, white in color, and fleshy. Field bindweed stems are prostrate (grows low to the ground) and twining, smooth, and can grow up to 6 feet long. Leaves are 1 to 2 inches long and are distinguishable by their
arrow-head shape. Flowers are rounded and white to pale pink in color. The flowers are about ¾ to 1 inch broad. Seeds are pearl-shaped, dull, and brown in color. One plant can produce anywhere between 30 and 200 seeds, the number
produced is variable on environmental conditions.
Apply in spring when the plant is in the bud stage or in fall after 12 inches of new growth.
Apply as broadcast or spot treatment to actively growing plants after crop harvest and before killing frost. See label for cropping limitations.
Apply to pasture, rangeland, cropland, and noncropland areas. Follow label directions and note cropping limitations.
