Palmer Amaranth Still Wreaking Havoc

State News

A superweed that’s caused a lot of devastation in our state has found a new way to wreak havoc in another. 

According to the Minnesota Ag Department– cows have eaten remnants of Palmer Amaranth because it’s showing up in their feed.
Then, in turn, it shows up in manure that farmers spread on their fields.
It has already been confirmed in six Minnesota counties. 
Palmer Amaranth has been destroying corn and soybean crops in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. 
It was detected for the first time ever in North Dakota in August of 2018. Officials from N-D-S-U say they are gearing up to fight it because it is so devastating.
