New Video Series on Herbicide Resistant Pigweed Management and Identification

Posted: December 8, 2016

Weed management specialists at Penn State have released a 5-Part series of videos on managing and identifying herbicide resistant pigweeds in the mid-Atlantic.

Weed management specialists at Penn State have released a 5-Part video series on managing, identifying, and preventing the spread of the challenging herbicide resistant pigweeds Palmer Amaranth and waterhemp. These highly competitive weeds are of increasing concern in Pennsylvania, and their resistance to glyphosate and ALS-inhibitor herbicides poses a management challenge in row crops and horticultural crops. As we continue to hear of serious infestations in southeastern PA, and more cases spreading throughout the state, we hope that these videos will be helpful resources for targeting these weeds and preventing their introduction to new fields.

The videos are also easily viewable on YouTube via the Penn State Extension channel.
