Weed of the Week- Arrowleaf Sida

Arrowleaf Sida

Arrowleaf Sida, sometimes referred to as Teaweed, is an erect growing plant with smooth stems that seldom branch, broad lance-shaped leaves, and a toothed leaf margin.  Flowers are generally yellow to yellow-orange.  Arrowleaf sida can be either an annual or a perennial, and can grow up to four (4) feet tall with a deep taproot.

There are many herbicide options for controlling Arrowleaf Sida, the choice depending on forage type and time of year.  To develop a management plant, contact your local extension agent and review Weed Management in Pastures and Rangelands.
