Summary

In recent years, the creeping thistle has become a problematic weed, especially for organic arable farms with good soils.
Wherever it grows, it is competing with crops for water and nutrients. Once established, the thistle can only be reduced to a tolerable density with a lot of patience.
So far, there is no patent remedy for its control on organic farms. By abiding certain rules of plant cultivation in combination with direct methods, the thistle can be effectively controlled.


Summary translation

Die Ackerkratzdistel kann sich vor allem in Bioackerbaubetrieben mit guten Böden zu einem Problemunkraut entwickeln. Wo sie sich ausbreitet, konkurrenziert sie mit den Kulturen um Wasser und Nährstoffe. Einmal etabliert, lässt sie sich nur mit viel Geduld auf eine tolerierbare Bestandesdichte reduzieren.
Eine Patentlösung für die Bekämpfung der Ackerkratzdistel existiert bisher für den Biobetrieb nicht. Unter Beachtung gewisser pflanzenbaulicher Regeln und in Kombination mit direkten Methoden lässt sie sich jedoch dauerhaft und erfolgreich regulieren.
