Can you ID this plant?

Our client brought in this plant for identification. He also wants to know how to get rid of it. It is growing in his beet garden. Thanks

This appears to be a common purslane weed which is low growing and spreads by seeds. Remove the weed before the flowers open to prevent further spread by seed.

Hope that helps.
