Palmer Amarynth Information

March 27, 2014

Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri) is an aggressive, invasive weed native to the desert regions of the southwest United States and northern Mexico. It slowly infiltrated the southeast United States and has become one of the most significant weed pests of cotton and soybean producers. What makes Palmer amaranth such a problem is that most populations are resistant to glyphosate and ALS herbicides.
