The technical guide explains the challenges that arable farmers face in control of creeping thistle, a persistent perennial weed. The guide provides detailed recommendations, how to prevent thistles from establishing in crops, how to limit spreading after first plants have established, and how to proceed in case of extensive spread of thistles using mechanical control measures and intensive greening.
