The North Dakota Department of Agriculture says they’re working to determine the source of the Palmer amaranth confirmed last week in Sioux and Grant counties. In a statement, NDDA said they received numerous calls from producers impacted by the drought needing feed who stated they understand the risks associated with screenings and that they need to have good weed management in place. The North Dakota Ag Department also says they’ve worked with processors to establish testing protocols for screenings to minimize or eliminate the risk of noxious weeds going back out as livestock feed.
