When and how do I need to collect the weed samples?

common redroot:

The perfect time has come once the plant starts to cast its first seeds. This normally happens 1-2 weeks before the regional barley harvest is supposed to begin. You can then easily strip off the seeds from the heads and pack them.

ryegrass:

Normally ryegrass does not cast its seeds or if it does, it will happen quite late. However the seeds will be ripe around the same time the common amaranth seeds are ripe. This means about 1-2 weeks before the barley harvest. But it can also be collected just before the wheat harvest is about to begin. We recommend packing the whole brittle head in case you can’t strip off the seeds.

wind grass:

Wind grass takes longer to ripen than common redroot. You should wait until about 1-2 weeks before the wheat harvest to ensure that the seeds are fully ripened. Then simply strip off a big tuft from the plant and pack it.

brome:
Brome’s seed maturation depends on the brome type. Experience has shown that 1-2 weeks before the harvest is a good time here as well. Then strip off the seeds from the plant as well as possible.
