Pay Attention to Palmer

In NDSU’s “Getting it Right in Dry Bean Production” webinar, topics like weed control, market outlook, and new varieties were tackled. Farmers should be thinking about the weeds they faced this past year and make a game plan for 2023. In a webinar this past week, NDSU Extension Weed Specialist Joe Ikley said dry bean growers need to be alert for Palmer amaranth. “It’s more problematic than Red River pigweed.” Ikley says there’s overlap in management between Palmer amaranth’s and waterhemp.
