Description

Palmer amaranth has become increasingly prevalent in crop fields in the southern U.S. over the past 8 to 10 years. Glyphosate resistance in Palmer amaranth was first confirmed in Georgia in 2004. Now, glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth is widespread in Georgia, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The resistant biotype is causing substantial yield loss, reduction in harvest efficiency, and complete abandonment of some fields. The focus of this presentation will be on glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth, a close relative of waterhemp, including:
