This far along in the growing season, Legleiter said the best bet for farmers who find Palmer amaranth in their fields is to see if specific herbicides are allowed in reproductive-stage soybeans and to hand-remove escapes to prevent seed production. Herbicides are available for treating the plant in ditches and fencerows.

More information is available in Johnson and Legleiter’s publication, Palmer Amaranth Biology, Identification, and Management, available for free download from Purdue Extension’s The Education Store at www.the-education-store.com. Search for WS-51.
