With more Palmer amaranth popping up in North Dakota and Minnesota, farmers may want to consider farming like the weed is in their field. BASF Technical Service Representative Duane Rathmann says farmers may want to consider stepping up their weed management game. “We want to use constant layers of residuals. When you go to the post emergence application, don’t quit there. You’ll also add a residual active on Palmer amaranth. I’m not gonna say the weed is easy to control when it’s just starting, but if you let it get out of hand in a field, you’re playing catch up and you never really achieve control.”
