Palmer amaranth has been a problem in the south, but now the weed has been found further north. Some has been introduced in cotton seed from the south being fed to livestock, some may have come in in CREP seeding’s. No matter the source, Mark Loux, Extension weed scientist at The Ohio State University says it’s not often we have the opportunity to be at the front end of a problem. He’s hopeful we can keep Palmer amaranth from becoming established.
