Managing Palmer Amaranth - South


Management of Palmer Amaranth has become more dificult due to increased populations with resistance to various herbicide groups combined with the weed's ability to spread rapidly. In a research study, a single plant rapidly infested 95 to 100% of fields only three years after introduction. It was noted that rainwater helped disperse seed in this study. Hand-weeding weed escapes may be required to prevent seed production
