Last week’s Palmer amaranth finding is the first time the noxious weed has been confirmed in Traill County, North Dakota. Extension Sugarbeet Agronomist and Weed Control Specialist Tom Peters is disappointed. “It seems North Dakota is not doing a good job being proactive with this noxious weed. Palmer amaranth is going to be a game changer. It will impact everybody, but especially sugarbeet growers because of the limited amount of products we have to control it.” (Photo from 2021)
