arvense (leaves glabrous below, thin, flat, and shallowly to deeply pinnatifid); var. Hsiao, and G.I. [48], Drought may favor or disfavor Cirsium arvense. [66] Impacts of Ceutorhynchus litura are also enhanced when Canada thistle is infected with the fungal pathogen Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. [7] In Montana shoots usually begin to emerge in the second week of May [25] while in Nebraska shoots emerge beginning 22 March, and flowering begins about 1 June. Sprankle, O., W.F. 1991. Cirsium arvense can tolerate soils with up to 2% salt content (Reed and Hughes 1970). 1991. It also invades riparian areas and along irrigation ditches from the western plains across the northern half of the inter-mountain west to the Sierra Nevada and Cascade ranges. Oecologia 90:534-539. 1994). variety Cirsium arvense var. Repeated applications (two applications at 10-14 day intervals) of 2.2 kg/ha provided better control than single applications at higher rates (3.4 - 6.7 kg/ha; [96]). Avoid treating thistles immediately before the first frost. 1972. [3], Chromosome number for all Cirsium arvense varieties is 2n = 34. [73] For effective control, beetles must be deposited on thistle rosettes at approximately 4 m intervals, or at least in each patch within a site. The Vascular Plants of South Dakota. 1992. Stress inflicted by organisms on Canada thistle. Weed Research 22:345-359. Derby. [4] All species of Cirsium ("plumed thistle") have a pappus with branched hairs, in contrast to the unbranched pappus hairs on Carduus ("plumeless thistle"). It is also commonly known as Canada thistle and field thistle. R.G. Larvae of the fly Orellia ruficauda (Diptera) damage seed heads. This was seen in both natural plants emitting the fragrance and emitting the scent synthetically. Some effects of humidity on the growth and development of, Zimdahl, R.L. [8][9] Once patches or individuals are located remove or treat them before they flower and set seed (note that vegetative, and not sexual, reproduction is the primary method of expansion). [91] 3.1% of the applied 2,4-D is extruded from the roots. Noun 1. Disease development, however, requires high moisture conditions which are less likely as the growing season progresses in most areas. 1995. 1959. Zonno, A. Stierle, and G. Strobel. Areas treated with repeated discing, repeated mowing, or broadcast herbicide application usually have little or no native vegetation remaining. vestitum Wimm. Effect of, Rotheray, G.E. Fay, B.K. Wyse. Flowering is triggered by long days. [21] Throughout its range it is common on roadsides, in oldfields, croplands, and pastures, in deep, well-aerated, mesic soils. [5] Hayden (1934) [18]reported plants developing from root fragments as small as 0.5 cm, and 95% establishment from 1 cm long root fragments. Under high soil moisture, Canada thistle roots are susceptible to damping off. Releases of Altica carduorum (Chrysomelidae, Coleoptera) against the weed Canada thistle (. Hurrell, and D.J. It has been suggested that at least three biocontrol organisms may be needed for effective Canada thistle control. Wyse and J.M. Females produce an average of 40-59 seeds/flowerhead [26][18][22], and "males" average 6 + 4 seeds/head. Allelopathic activity of Canada thistle (. [5] Shoots emerge March - May when mean weekly temperatures reach 5o C. Rosette formation follows, with a period of active vertical growth (about 3 cm/day) in mid-to-late June. A single control method is rarely effective and it is often necessary to use two or more methods at any given site (Lee 1952). Weed Science 34:889-895. Tech. Dexter, S.T.

McIntyre. [58] Cassida rubignosa larvae are themselves parasitized by fly, wasp, and beetle species. Control efforts may be more successful when Cirsium arvense is under environmental stress. [87] Good soil moisture is important for glyphosate to be effective. Effect of drought stress on Canada thistle control. Weeds 12:167-171. [23] Three consecutive fall applications of 2,4-D did not reduce Cirsium arvense "sufficiently" (Donald 1993). In Alberta, Canada, spring burning in a marsh favored growth of native species and did not alter Cirsium arvense biomass. Donald, W.W. 1994. p. 425-431 in Delfosse, E.S., Ed., Proceedings Fourth International Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds, August 1984, Vancouver, Canada. & Grab.) Shoot density and root growth are closely correlated: areas with highest shoot density also have the highest underlying root biomass and highest density of adventitious root buds, and also more deep roots. Field studies of seed predation in an introduced weedy thistle. [4], Cirsium arvense can be confused with other thistles, especially bull thistle (Cirsium vulgare), and the closely related musk thistles (Carduus sp). Variations in the organic reserves in underground parts of five perennial weeds from late April to November. [39] It may therefore not be a desirable control agent. [64] In North America, larvae of the native painted lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui; Lepidoptera) feed on Canada thistle and other related thistles and cause extensive defoliation within localized areas, but impact varies year to year due to migration patterns. Roberts, H.A. Entomologia Generalis 19:191-207. 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). Baig, and L.P. Lefkovitch. This intensity of mowing is not recommended in natural areas, where it would likely damage native vegetation. [42] However, dry winters can result in mortality due to desiccation of roots. Clopyralid may have limited soil residual and is most effective on short (young) thistle shoots. Such hybridization is possible in North America where these species grow in close proximity, but none has been reported in the Great Lakes (Gucker 2009). Response of Cirsium arvense to glyphosate varies among clones (Frank and Tworkoski 1995). 1975. Cirsium arvense response to glyphosate differs between sites and/or clones. 124 pp. 1975. Lym, R.G. and W.H. [74], Orellia ruficauda is a small fly that deposits its eggs in Cirsium arvense flower heads. Very young plants are eaten by goats or sheep in the spring, but grazing is the least effective control method for Canada thistle. It has little or no soil residual. Horizontal roots produce numerous shoots, while vertical roots store water and nutrients in their many small branches. [24] However, when the soil is warm (17°C) and air temperatures moderate (15/5°C) as is common in autumn, Canada thistle grows vigorously.[24]. [5][18][17], In 1975, Canada thistle's range was an estimated 9,770,000 km2 in North America, extending over an area 2090 km north to south, and 4700 km east to west. Harris. 1994b. Annals of Botany (London) 31:195-211. 1993. 1386. [70], Leaf-feeding Painted Lady Butterfly (Vanessa cardui), Larvae of the native Painted Lady Butterfly (Vanessa cardui) feed on Cirsium arvense and other Cirsium species, and can defoliate and kill individual plants. =. [5], Root carbohydrate reserves follow an annual cycle. Plants systemically diseased with the rust gradually but surely die. Ceutorhynchus mining may have significant impacts after Sclerotinia infection under drought conditions, especially in the western Great Plains. Proceedings of the Northeastern Weed Science Society 39:98. Stems with flowers that have been open 8-10 days can develop viable seeds (Derscheid and Schultz 1960). The leaves, which are spiny and usually lobed, are alternate along the stems and up to 20cm long and 3cm wide (smaller the higher up the stems they occur). 1980. Hodgson, and L.C. Another horizontal root system is usually initiated at the downward bend. Cirsium arvense var. and P.B. Most root buds are produced in the center of a patch (up to 800/m2) near the soil surface (root bud density decreases with depth; [39]). [23][24][25] One to 5 flower heads occur per branch, with plants in very favourable conditions producing up to 100 heads per shoot. Tworkoski, T. 1992. Cirsium ochrolepideum Juz. The rust Puccinia punctiformis and the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum attack shoots and roots respectively. Effect of moisture stress on Canada thistle (. 1970. [29] Seed set in females is constrained by pollen availability and is highest when male and female plants are near each other but decreases sharply when female plants are >50 m distant from male plants. [63] Larvae of the intentionally introduced biocontrol weevil Ceutorhynchus litura feed on stems of Canada thistle. [40] A four-month old plant had a 101 cm root, with 19 shoot buds. It is particularly troublesome in the northwest and north central states, and in southern Canada. R.C. Canadian Journal of Botany 67:1448-1455. Schaber, B.D., E.V. [3], Crop tolerance and weed control ratings were conducted in the spring of 2012, and the Prepass herbicide by DOW AgroSciences was found to be most effective at controlling the species as a weed problem in alfalfa fields. [67] Vegetative shoots were most susceptible to the disease [67] but the disease was not transferred to shoots that emerged after the initial infection. Scientific Agriculture 7:268-276. Weedy thistles of the western United States. American Journal of Botany 21:355-373. Competition from tall fescue was more detrimental to Cirsium arvense than competition from crownvetch (Coronilla varia)[68], and damage increased in when tall fescue was used in combination with Cassida rubignosa. Westview Press. It grows along the edges of woods (both deciduous and coniferous), but is rarely found within forests. 1985. The plant's vigor decreases with drought conditions [11], especially in autumn [54] although in Sweden, Cirsium arvense's long root system allows it to tolerate dry summers better than annual crops. [23] Plants treated with glyphosate one day before frost had much lower translocation of herbicide to the roots than plants in warm conditions, or plants hardened to cool air and soil temperatures (15/5°C; [24]). Bakker (1960)[22] determined that seed buried 1 cm deep lost all viability after 10 months, while seed buried 40 cm deep retained 35-39% viability after 30 months. Forsyth and Watson (1985a)[61] reported that Orellia ruficauda occurred in up to 70% of flowerheads and destroyed 22% (range 0-90%) of the seeds/head. 1995. [68] The organisms tested for biological control were not simultaneously tested for tolerance to herbicides [69] but it appears that 2,4-D can be applied at low rates in conjunction with the rust Puccinia punctiformis to achieve better control than either treatment alone. [4] The Chippewa considered it to be "tonic, diuretic and astringent". ex Herd. [40] Root weight averages 1100 g/m2 and decreases with depth, from 500 g/m2 in the top 30 cm, to 350 g/m2 in 31-60 cm, and 250 g/m2 in 61-90 cm depth. While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date information available, ultimate legal … N.C. Weed Control Conference 35:17. Use of the dye which persisted as a marker of treated plants for up to a week cut both the time involved and amount of herbicide used in half. Subject: Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. In another wetland in Alberta, Canada, Cirsium arvense cover was not affected by fire [21], but increased when the wetland area was subjected to drought. Journal of Agriculture 12:300-302. [68] However, damage by Cassida rubignosa is rarely sufficient to reduce thistle growth in the field. Roitberg.

Ralphs, and R.D. Subordinate taxa. 1983. In a mesic grassland in Oregon, dormant season fire reduced Canada thistle flowerhead and seed production. [39], Shoot density is positively correlated with rainfall during the previous growing season; density increased following a year of above-normal precipitation, and decreased the year following a growing season drought. Flowering plants had equal density in burned and unburned plots (55-61/m2) but produced 50% fewer flowerheads in the burned plots (18/shoot vs 36/shoot, respectively; [81]). Fargo ND. Aplotaxis cirsoides DC. Canada thistle biology and control. Tilling until August 1 ensures that newly emerged shoots will remain as rosettes, as Cirsium arvense flowers only under long-days. order Asterales. Darwent et al. Resource limitation and offspring size and number trade-offs in, Lloyd, D. and A.J. [80] This disease has been proposed for consideration as a biological control organism. [48] When the main shoot is removed (e.g. It seems likely that animal disturbance from conventional grazing encourages the spread of Canada thistle, as has been demonstrated for C. lanceolatum, C. vulgare, and C. 1994b, Hunter 1996)[86][104]. Arny, A.C. 1932. Species. Journal of Range Management 6:299-306. and R.L. U.S. Dept. Distribution and seed production of. [20] An August fire increased biomass and shoot density of Cirsium arvense, which averaged 63 g/m2 vs 5 g/m2, and 20 shoots/m2 vs 0.9 shoots/m2, on burned and unburned plots, respectively. [14] According to Flora of Northwest Europe[23] the two varieties are: The Biology of Canadian Weeds: Cirsium arvense[14] list four varieties: The seeds are an important food for the goldfinch and the linnet, and to a lesser extent for other finches. 1989. In eastern North America, it occasionally occurs in relatively dry habitats, including sand dunes and sandy fields, as well as on the edges of wet habitat, including stream banks, lakeshores, cleared swamps, muskegs and ditches.[1]. Flower visits to Cirsium and Carduus (abstract). [61] Defoliation by Cassida rubignosa is most effective at high insect density on young plants [61], but under field conditions this insect is not synchronized with young thistles and thus causes minimal damage. Jepson - cobwebby thistle Cirsium … [5] Seedlings first develop a branched primary root 5-10 cm deep, and then produce their first true leaves. Restoration and Management Notes 3:87. [71] Unfortunately, Ceutorhynchus litura larvae mine the parenchyma tissue of the stem pith and do not damage vascular bundles, so water translocation is not affected. 1989. Cirsium arvense management programs should be designed to kill established clones since the species spreads primarily by vegetative expansion of the root system. When tilling is discontinued after early August, new shoots do not produce flower stalks. 1986. The plant is very tenacious and difficult to control once established. Overall, biocontrol currently provides little or no control of Canada thistle populations, although some agents weaken and kill individual plants. 1993. phylum Tracheophyta class Magnoliopsida order Asterales family Asteraceae genus Cirsium species Cirsium acaule (L.) Scop. The basis of this selectivity is not well understood for clopyralid or other auxin-type herbicides like 2,4-D or triclopyr (sold under the tradename Garlon®). Moore, R.J. and C. Frankton. Response of Canada thistle (, Magnusson, M.U., D.L. [56] Rogers (1928)[5] indicated that young shoots and roots "can be used in the same ways as asparagus", and were eaten in Russia and by Native Americans. Ohio State University Agricultural College Extension Service 146. Effect of moisture on the emergence of. Environmental and herbicide effects on Canada thistle ecotypes (. Scientific Name: Cirsium arvense. Reductions in thistle density were estimated, in 10 sites in the U.S., Greece, and Russia, to average 43%, 64%, and 81% by 18, 30, and 42 months, respectively, after a single application of spores of the fungus.[43].

[26] Hermaphrodites closely resemble typical male flowers. [11] By 1918 it was on the noxious weed lists of 25 northern states and by 1991 it had been declared noxious by at least 35 states and 6 Canadian provinces. & Grab. A total of 0.84 kg/ha resulted in 84% control with one application, and 92% with two applications. [10] Eight percent of seedlings (19 days old) with 2 true leaves resprouted when their tops were cut.[33]. 1968. in Canada thistle Symposium, Proceedings N.C. Weed Control Conference 36:162-167.

Clopyralid is a relatively selective post-emergence herbicide that kills certain broadleaf weeds and woody plants but does little harm to others such as members of the mustard family (Brassicaceae) or to grasses and other monocots. 1979. 1980. Story, J.M., H. DeSmet-Moens, and W.L. Cirsium arvense (L.) Scop. [65][78][79] Cleonus piger is a root-feeding weevil that can cause wilting and plant death, but plants usually regenerate from damaged vascular tissue. found application of Roundup to individual plants with a Walk-a-Wick applicator was difficult because the thistles were often below grass level. and I.M. d'Urv. Entomologische Berichten (Amsterdam) 52:137-140. Hermaphrodites and subhermaphrodites in a reputedly dioecious plant, Lalonde, R.G. Areas treated with less aggressive techniques, such as prescribed fire, spot-applied herbicides, biocontrol agents, or infrequent mowing, usually retain most of the native community. [20] Seedling density also increased following the summer fire. At a density of 20 beetles/plant, over two-thirds of the thistles died by the end of the growing season. This may explain presence of Cirsium arvense in degraded wetlands, or wetlands with lowered water tables. horridum Wimm. Perennial and biennial thistle control. In Ontario there appeared to be a synergistic relationship between infestation of thistle by Ceutorhynchus litura and infection by the rust Puccinia punctiformis. [24] Growth is more vigorous under 25/15°C (day/night) regime than colder (15/5°C) or warmer (30/22°C) regimes, with 13 and 15 hours of light.

The insect complexes associated with the stems of seven thistle species. Cirsium arvense produces numerous small flowers clustered in heads that are typically 1-1.5 cm in diameter and 1.3-1.5 cm tall. Through comparison of its genetic expressions, the plant evolves differently with respects to where it has established itself. 538 pp. and L.W. Natural areas invaded by Cirsium arvense include prairies and other grasslands in the midwest and Great Plains and riparian areas in the inter-mountain west. and A.C. Ellis-Adam. 1996. Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide that can be used when the plant has grown a few inches tall, where the herbicide can be absorbed by the leaf surfaces. [96], Thistle density decreased >80% after single applications, applied late May through late June. 1929. 1986. Wilkinson. 121 pp. Glyphosate effects on Canada thistle (. Picloram accumulates in shoot apices (Sharma and Vanden Born 1973 cited in Donald 1990)[93] and is applied at flower bud stage or to fall regrowth. [1], The Canada thistle is part of the Cirsium genus, in the subtribe Carduinae, trube Cardueae and family Astreracae. Hodgson (1968)[7] found combining 2,4-D at 0.24 to 2.24 kg/ha with 33.6 kg/ha nitrogen and 112 kg/ha phosphorus resulted in better thistle control and higher yields of spring wheat than either herbicide or fertilizer alone. In recent years C. palustre (European swamp thistle) has joined their ranks. Lhotska, M. and M. Holub. Cirsium arvense is usually dioecious, with male and female flowers produced on separate plants. variety Cirsium arvense var. Dormant season burning (December or April) also stimulated production of numerous small Canada thistle shoots, resulting in higher density but equal biomass. The standard English name in its native area is creeping thistle. M.S. [22] Total florets (individual flowers within each flowerhead)/plant varies by clone, and can range from approximately 100 [18] to 430-1120. and E.W. Biological Control 86:28-35. Brewster, B.D. Monograph No. Cirsium arvense has numerous ecotypes that respond differently to management activities. Cirsium horridum (Wimm. At least 7 insect species have been intentionally or unintentionally released for Canada thistle control in North America and a few of them cause conspicuous damage. (2015) Asymptomatic systemic disease of Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense) caused by Puccinia punctiformis and changes in shoot density following inoculation. Cirsium arvense. 1994. Four consecutive annual applications at 0.45 kg/ha reduced Cirsium arvense shoot density > 98%, at two sites, but at the third site four annual applications at 1.8 kg/ha were required. Westview Press. Behavior of weed seed in soil clods. Ecotypes vary in their light requirements, with some ecotypes blooming during 16 hour days, and others during 14 hour days; at shorter daylengths, flowering can be temperature dependent. Evans, M.H. Disclaimer: ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available, and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties. stated that boom spray application of 2,4-D for Canada thistle control in Kilen Woods State Park, Minnesota was ineffective because it set back the succession of natural communities, actually opening areas for thistle invasion. Bentazon-induced chlorosis was evident in thistles emerging 10 months after treatment, indicating that Bentazon may be stored in roots over winter and transported back to the leaves in spring. [93] In order to prevent production of viable seeds, stems must be mown before the flowers open when they have been open for only a few days. On the other hand, shoot production by young plants is stimulated more by favorable temperature and moisture regimes than by nitrogen levels.[40]. Ang et al. Genus Cirsium may be biennials or perennials with spiny leaves and typical thistle-type flower-heads Details Creeping thistle is a perennial reaching 1m in height. Richardson. Split applications provided better control than a single application. Cassida rubignosa was accidentally introduced to the US in 1902 (Barber 1916 in Ang et al. Droplet size is also a factor, as large droplets kill leaf tissue more than small droplets. Bostock S.J. In Russia, Mikhailova and Tarasov (1989)[53] determined that the majority of shoots in a clone were both mature and vegetative; less than 10% were either young or sexually reproductive. 1989. Idaho Agricultural Experimental Station Bulletin 288. 1981. Response of Canada thistle varieties to amitrole and glyphosate. 1989. Hershenhorn, J. M. Vurro, M.C.

Canada thistle ecotypes varied greatly in their susceptibility to 2,4-D [9] and 2,4-D's impacts on treated plants were erratic [93] and less effective than glyphosate or dicamba. [39], Individual roots live up to two years. The developing larvae mine leaves and migrate inside stems to the root collars. [101] Hodgson (1968)[7] found that mowing alfalfa fields twice annually, at Canada thistle's early-bud to pre flowering stage (early to mid-June in Montana) and early fall (September) reduced Canada thistle to 1% of its initial value in four years. Phytophagous insects associated with Canada thistle, Peschken, D.P. [47], "Cursed thistle" redirects here. 2011. A review of North American tortoise beetles. Kansas Academy of Science Transactions 54:356-369. Ralphs, and R.D. Additionally, weedy Eurasian species of Carduus, Onopordum, Centaurea , etc., add to the public perception that all thistles are bad. French, and G.R. 1994a. Cirsium arvense is an erect perennial rhizomatous thistle, usually 0.5 - 1.0 m tall, distinguished from all other thistles by 1) creeping horizontal lateral roots; 2) dense clonal growth; and 3) small dioecious (male and female flowers on separate plants) flowerheads. Cirsium arvense ecotypes vary in susceptibility to dicamba. Root versus shoot measurements to evaluate recovery of Canada thistle (, Donald, W.W. and T. Prato. Synonyms for Cirsium heterophylum in Free Thesaurus. Tomarek, G.W. Bentazon for Canada thistle (. Smother crops are used in integrated pest management systems for Canada thistle on agricultural lands (Hodgson 1968)[7] but the smother crops known to be effective are themselves invasive. [22] In areas that are susceptible to thistle invasion but which have not yet been invaded, management programs should be implemented to prevent the species from becoming established. Erickson. Child, Ed.'s. genus Cirsium. Salley, E.L. Sharp, and D.C. Sands. [14] In Canada, the major impact of Cirsium arvense is in agricultural land, and in natural areas that have been disturbed or are undergoing restoration. (leaves glabrous below, t… Fay, E.L. Sharp, B. Sallee, and D. Sands. [17] Cirsium arvense occurs throughout Europe, northern Africa, western and central Asia, northern India, Japan, China, and northern North America, South Africa, New Zealand, Tasmania, and southeastern Australia (Dewey 1901). Oregon State University. Cirsium arvense threatens natural communities by directly competing with and displacing native vegetation, decreasing species diversity, and changing the structure and composition of some habitats. Distinguishing characteristics of Cirsium arvense are 1) flowerheads small (<2.5 cm high) and dioecious ) and 2) stems not conspicuously spiny-winged. One fall application with clopyralid at 560 g/ha prevented almost all Cirsium arvense shoot emergence the following spring. [18] the fragrance that C. arvense emits attracts both pollinators and florivores containing compounds that attract each respectively. vestitum Wimmer & Grab. The northern limit of the zone of highest density in Canada corresponds with the -18°C (0°F) mean January isotherm, whereas the southern limit of the species is probably controlled by high summer temperatures and short-day length. Host selection behavior of a thistle-feeding fly: choices and consequences. An ecological study of the prairie and pasture lands in Douglas & Franklin Counties, Kansas. Germination of buried and dry stored seeds,. Pinkish-purple (occasionally white), the flower … and J.L. Horizontal roots grow within 15-30 cm of the soil surface, and typically grow in a straight line for 60-90 cm, then bend down and grow vertically. 1981. Purdue University Agricultural Experiment Station, Circular No. [26] Seed production is much higher with insect pollination (40-85 seeds/head) than wind pollination (0.2-0.8 seeds/head) (Derscheid and Schultz 1960). Lauridson, T.C., R.G. Abundance can be measured by recording the number of patches and the size of each patch along randomly located transects. 1976. [48] Cut plants also produce twice the length and weight of new shoots after just seven days under high humidity (100%) than low humidity (50%; [48]. Avoid applying herbicide to old leaves (thick cuticle limits absorption) or to drought-stressed leaves. [30] Although Cirsium arvense may help maintain diversity of pollinating insects in this way [30] it negatively impacts native plant communities and may thus have an negative impact on overall insect diversity as well. The leaves are very spiny, lobed, and up to 15–20 cm long and 2–3 cm broad (smaller on the upper part of the flower stem). An annotated list of insects associated with Canada thistle (. and D.L. Host plant suitability of various clones of Canada thistle to gall induction and host selection by. 1981. 1994. and A.K. P-anisaldehyde is found in less than 1%, yet it attracts pollinators such as honey bees. Young. A combination of biocontrol agents, or of biocontrol agents and herbicides, may provide better control of Canada thistle than any single agent. [2] This may reduce seed production and seed dispersal. [23] For optimal results apply glyphosate under warm conditions prior to the first killing frost and when soil moisture is good, or after plants have adjusted to colder weather. 1994. Messersmith. class Magnoliopsida. Suitable herbicides (e.g. [9], A number of other names are used in other areas or have been used in the past, including: Canadian thistle, lettuce from hell thistle, California thistle,[10] corn thistle, cursed thistle, field thistle, green thistle, hard thistle, perennial thistle, prickly thistle, small-flowered thistle, way thistle and stinger-needles. [1], Optimal growth occurs at 77°F day and 59°F night, in mesic soil with high nitrogen (15-30 ppm). [54] A total of 1.1 kg/ha in one or two applications reduced Cirsium arvense by 40%, and by 76% when applied in four applications.[54]. Hunter, J.H. [26] Creeping thistle foliage is used as a food by over 20 species of Lepidoptera, including the painted lady butterfly and the engrailed moth, and several species of aphids. 1976.
