Description

Palmer amaranth is native to the Southwestern United States, but its range has expanded over the past 50 years. The first documented occurrence in Iowa was this year, although with these infestations it is clear that the weed was initially introduced to the state prior to 2013. It has been a serious problem in the south, and gained national notoriety after developing resistance to glyphosate and devastating the cotton industry in the Southeast. This paper will review why the weed has garnered such attention and access the threat it poses to Iowa.
