Invasive Species in Alabama
Sicklepod, Sicklepod Senna, Java Bean, Blunt-leaf Senna, Chinese Senna, Arsenic Weed – Senna obtusifolia
It is often confused with coffee senna; however, sicklepodâ’s leaves are rounded whereas coffee sennaâ’s leaves are pointed.
Sicklepod in its seeding stage in non-crop areas is not very difficult to control. However, it becomes much more challenging to manage when it gets older, requiring much higher application herbicides. Herbicides with an active ingredient of 2,4-D works well with eradicating Sicklepods in pastures. Extracted from here.
