Herbicide-resistant pigweed, specifically Palmer amaranth and waterhemp, are a major economic issue for U.S. farmers. These weed species can grow rapidly, producing large amounts of seeds, allowing them to compete with row crops for nutrients, moisture, and sunlight. This gives them the potential to cause yield loss and devalue farms — ultimately threatening the legacy of an operation.
We've partnered with some of our corn, soy, cotton, and rice farmers in the south and midwest to share their experience as they address resistant pigweed on-farm. Learn how their practices are evolving and the challenges they are overcoming in their fight against resistant pigweed.
