Description

A number of pigweed species can be found throughout the Midwest, but we are most concerned about those species that are commonly found in cropping situations. The most common weedy pigweeds can be separated into three distinct groups according to their taxonomic characteristics and overall appearance. The first group includes some of the most common pigweeds in the Midwest: redroot pigweed (Amaranthus retroflexus), smooth pigweed (Amaranthus hybridus) and Powell amaranth (Amaranthus powellii).
